July 2013 Stamp of the Month Blog Hop--"Sweet Life"

So glad you hopped over from
  Paper Crafting With Heart by Nancy Womersley

Celebrate the "Sweet Life" with the fruits of your artistry in this hand-drawn look stamp set with beautiful apple, peaches and cherries and sentiments to coordinate.
While the photography may look a little messy, I wanted you to see the technique with which I colored in the images.  You stamp the image on some glossy or photo paper and cut out certain parts of the image to create a template.  Stamp the image on your card piece and lay the template over your image so you can sponge color onto your card.  I also used the  Desert Sand watercolor pencil to color in the branches.  The white blossoms were made with our Chalk Marker.  The Glitter paper adds some dazzle to the look.  I  used the Desert Sand pencil lightly with cross hatch marks around the fruit for a bit more texture.  I loved the look of these cards when I finished!
Now hop on over to  Jean McNulty's Stampin' in Maui
