December Fun

I love to enter into the Technique Swaps on this Group as Melody sets some wonderful challenges.  The first look makes the card look simple but it hardly ever works out like that!!
I thought that it is easy to create our own take on a card which is what it looked like, however .... I then re-read the instructions ... yes! I know! read twice and inwardly digest!!!

Here is the card (which you can find all about here)

Now I read the instructions - stamp an outline and then fill the outline with smaller stamps.
The only suitable outline stamp I own is a flower, which I stamped in black and embossed in black.  I filled in the petals by using some of my smaller Tapestry stamps ...
.... it doesn't look quite right so I went back to the relevant post and read it again ....

I emailed Melody as it looks like the challenge is to stamp the pear shape ... I don't want to buy a new stamp for a one off ...
.... no!!!
use the outline of the pear and copy the style in your own way.

So I found a digi of a pear outline, filled it in using flower stamps to shade the pear from deep orange through to lemon, using green ink and leaf stamps for the leaf and a brown butterfly for the stalk.  It was good to use my Tapestry stamps a different way.

A piece of paper with leaves punched through, a piece of pink wall paper and then ... three metallic leaves all complete the card.
My take on this card is complete!
