I had seen this cool technique on Pinterest where you took an old painting and put letter stickers over it then painted black on top of that. Instead of stickers, I used a brush and masking fluid to paint my word and design. I was inspired by this can of fruit from the Inspiration Site Packaging of the World. So, I inked up my leaves and "cherries" with pigment inks using a piece of metal mesh to add a second color to each for a bit more depth. I added some Washi tape accents (note to self-when using Chevron tape make sure you're straight before pressing down!). I'm not sure I'm wild about this-may go back and add in some stickles or some gem accents where my dots are and then I'll frame this.

I just go crazy when people share the technique behind their extraordinary designs! This is soooo cool, I will just have to try it myself. :) Thanks so much for playing and for sharing your inspiration today!
