What a Pear!

Hi Everyone!

Can you believe the school year is almost over?  This spring has been sooo busy, with showers, wedding, retirement parties/dinners and, of course, planning for the summer. I needed a wedding card and did something a little different and non-traditional.
One of my favorite Sweet 'n Sassy Stamp Sets is Punny Fruits and Veggies.  I created a mask for the pear and stamped two of the images to represent the 'happy pair'.  The image comes with a smiley face, but in this case, I decided to mask that out.

With watercoloring being so trendy right now, I decided to get my water brush and reinkers out to color my pears.

And I love the trendy colors of black, gray and yellow!  CutCardStock has the perfect cardstock to complete this color combo.  I used Neenah Solar White cs for my base, image panel, and woodgrained embossed panel.  My yellow circular panel is Carmelized Mustard from the Flavors Gourmet cardstock sample pack.  The gray comes from the same pack and is Squid.  The bit of green is Jelly Bean Green from the Pop Tones Sample Pack.  I used a small bit of designer paper from Heartfelt Creations for the scalloped edge.  The stamped frame is from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Vintage Seed Packet Stamp Set.  I added a bit of glitz to my pears with my Wink of Stella marker; love that thing!  Wink if Stella is a crafting must have for a bit of shimmer!

I relied on Fusion Card Challenge for my sketch inspiration. 
 I really like how this turned out; love the nontraditional look and the fun play on words, but the card is still elegant. 

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  Have a blessed weekend!
