Tuesday Morning Sketches #91

It's another wonderful Tuesday morning at Tuesday Morning Sketches. This week Melissa has a great sketch. I challenge everyone to not make it a Christmas card! When I first looked at the sketch it screamed Christmas...but I was determined to make something else.

I really like how my card came out. I hope that someday I can make a card and it not take several hours. Watercoloring the apple was easy, cutting it out was simple. It was pulling the paper and the embelishments together that I managed to tear my entire craft room apart and go through every sheet of paper and every embelishment I have. I have so much stuff, but it seems all I want to do is buy more and more stuff. What an addiction we/I have!!

I used a stamp set called Fruitful Delight from Close to My Heart. I really like this set. I have been a bit intimidated by the other fruits...I made a card with the cherries, but never the apple, the strawberries, or the pear. I think coloring a pear would be hard. This summer when I am off I hope to go to a watercoloring class to learn some techniques. The flourishes and scallops I used are not stamps, but rub-ons. I have never liked rub-ons, but CTMH has a good quality rub-on. Another idea using these rub-ons would've been to make coffee cups!!

Thanks for stopping by. I do hope that you'll tell me what you think of my card. Have an awesome day!

Theresa, this is gorgeous! Love your coloring of the apple, and those rub-ons are a perfect touch. I laughed at your story about tearing up the craft room, that is me every time I create!
