PEAR WITH A FRENCH FLAIR!


For my last card of the hop I have used another Alesa Baker design. 
The Print Pear has beautiful script and shading on it. After fussy cutting and coloring the Pear with my Copics I used several layers of UTEE on it.
The French Script stamp was die cut and edged with a Krylon 18kt gold leafing pen. For the background I have used the Canvas Cover-a-Card and stamped with Distress Ink in Linen. I've repeated the gold leaf edging on some of the layers.
I love cards to have texture, layers and a nice weight to them. I've embellished with a strip of muslin, silk, twine, pearls and buttons.

All the new stamps are available NOW!
Thanks for looking and hope that you have enjoyed the hop!
