An apple a day...


Another card for the Dare to Get Dirty Challenges that I completed this weekend.  SO behind already, since 10 challenges have gone up since yesterday!  Good thing you can combine them.  This one is for Lydia's (understandblue) and Christine's (christinecreations). 

Did some dry brushing with Plaid's Folk Art paint in Lemonade around the edges.  Colored the apple basket from Waltzingmouse Stamps "Peace and Plenty" set with Copics in my very beginner way!  Good thing I had red for the apples, but no brown for the basket!  Stamped the striped paper to match at the bottom using Papertrey Ink's Faux Ribbon set.  The tag and sentiment are from PTI's Tiny Tags stamp set/die set.  Love that little heart tag, can never resist adding different paper to the back of the tag!

I love that lemonade paint Kelly. Very interesting effect on your card. I think your coloring looks like a pro! Cute apple basket.

This is a perfect card for someone who needs a feel better wish. I can't tell that you are a beginner with copics. Very cheery and all of the elements go together so nicely.
