How do ya like them apples?

I told you I've been having fun coloring the images from the new For Father set! I spent all my stamping time the other day just coloring a bunch of different images. Now I have a bunch of things I need to put together. For me that is the hardest part. Sometimes it seems to take me forever...moving around the different elements and deciding which embellishments to use. Luckily this one came together easily.

Like yesterdays card, this one also uses the Weathered background. The greeting is from the Love & Happiness SAB rub-on pack. It was so easy to add it to the twill tape and I think it's a great look.

Stamps: For Father, Weathered
Card stock: Runby Red, Blue Bayou, Kraft & Very Vanilla
Ink: Black Stazon, Close to Cocoa, various others to water color
Accessories: Antique Brass HPH, Twill Tape, Photo Corner punch, Aqua painter, Rub-ons

Thanks for stopping by...have a good one!

wow, I LOVE them apples! Great job. This card would match my apple kitchen perfectly. Hmm, maybe I should buy this set to make a picture for in there. Your coloring is spectacular, and I LOVE the weathered bg too. TFS. I have to admit, I am a Google RSS feed subscriber too. It does make it easy to see new things, but it is much nicer when we stop by and say hi :) Kel

Lynn, I know you have been told this, but girl, your watercoloring is beautiful! You did an incredible job on this card and should be proud! The puppy card is amazing as well, I love how you used the background stamp over the image to give it that aged look.

Thank you for sharing with us, it is inspirational to my stamping.
