Fall Pears

When I first learned to stamp, I was taught by a woman who loved pear stamps.  I used a few in classes but never bought one..until now.  I just received the new Pear Sketch Trio stamp from Memory Box.  I saw some gorgeous cards that inspired me.  I really don't make too many fall cards but for some reason I had to make one.  Not only was using a pear stamp new for me, I also used Glimmer Mist..oooooh. lol.  I used Bronze and Suede and spritz on my paper (Heavenly White).  I decided to use a paper towel to blot it up a little which left it a little smudgy.  I was obviously too close to the paper.  Before it dried (because I really lack patience and was too lazy to go to the other room to get a heat gun) I took my Prismacolor Pencils and colored in the pears and stems.  I then backed it with some cream colored paper cut out with my nestabilities and mounted it on Memory Box paper with a cream ribbon.  I wish the glimmer had shown up on the picture because it looks cool in person.  The card seems to need a little more, but I just wasn't sure what.  Maybe a quote?  Thanks for looking :)

Tiddly Inks Challenge #64 -Good bye Summer, Hello Fall

I made this card for the Tiddly Inks challenge this week.  I really love fall colors so this challenge was fun.  I used Druscilla who I haven't had the chance to use yet.  I colored her using my copics and added some glitter to her wings.  I used the Memory Box fall papers and added a paper flower.
