This is my card for this week's Impression Obsession challenge (fruits/veggies) and it fits this week's Mix-Ability challenge as well. I started by running the Large Bird on Branch die through my Big Shot using the embossing plates, so it just created an impression on the watercolor card. I used that outline to guide my watercoloring, done with Aquamarkers, and Distress markers.
I cut the branches (Leafy Branch) from another watercolor panel, colored them lightly with watercolor markers, then spritzed them to blend the color. The apples are actually cherries from the Cupcake die set.

Well they look like apples to me! This is an amazing work of creativity...I loved reading how you did it all and I am soooo impressed! Your blue sky/cloud background is so soft and dreamy and the coloring of your bird is amazing. I love the overlay of the IO branch and your fence is the cherry on top! It raced into my fav's!
