Pack your bags, we're off to the Apple Orchard! IO stamps Challenge

This week for our Travel/Vacation Challenge, I'm off to the Apple Orchard
Just about every September, I love to take a Sunday drive and pick Apples!!!

I LOVE this new image from Impression Obsession that will soon be released!!!!

I combined Prism Pencils (Apples and Leaves) with Touch Markers (Basket and branches) to colour this pretty image. I created a background with the Gingham Cover a Card Stamp, which is one of my go to stamps for backgrounds!

  1. Aww.... Thanks for the sweet words Vicki! Your coloring of the apple basket is simply stunning! Fab card!

  2. It's a lovely card, the CAC stamped tone on tone (or with Versamark) is a different way of using it, the coloring is great, especially on the apples and... I spotted the cat so I'm happy.


Thanks so much for visiting my blog. I hope you have a wonderful day and I very much appreciate your sweet comments!
