Me and this new stamp set I mean! I just love today’s Flourishes sneak peek! Pears are one of my favorite fruits, and they come in several colors, making them fun to color!
This set contains several pear images and sentiments. I used the largest image and colored it with Copic Markers on Flourishes Classic White card stock. I used Spellbinders dies Standard Circles large for the main image and the Picot Edge Circle for the mat which is a great gold card stock I’ve had forever. It’s not too shiny but it’s got the perfect amount of gloss to set off those pretty pears.
Then I covered the pears in micro beads. I wanted them to look like frosted fruit, like the kind I have in a bowl for decoration. I coated them in Crystal Effects then poured on the Martha Stewart micro beads. It’s messy, look out! But the effect is gorgeous. See the close up below!
See the beads? Aren’t they pretty! I love the look, but the card is really heavy now, extra stamp you know, lol!
The paper is from Authentique and I used a Martha Stewart border punch for the red striped and black papers. I finished it off with a wide green velvet ribbon.
