Cathy is this week's Ways to Use It hostess. Hope you'll join us for her timely challenge, WT603 An Apple a Day.
I live in Washington state, the biggest producer of apples, Johnny Appleseed must have had quite the following here. I used a Jonagold for my model, and promptly ate it ;) I stamped the image and colored with alcohol markers. I scribbled blue and aqua markers on a ceramic tile and used a water brush filled with 99% alcohol to create the soft blue shading. Stamped the sentiment and sketched the border with a Pitt pen. Mounted the image on a die cut panel and added gingham ribbon and a bow to complete. TFL

Fabulous colouring...and I bet you enjoyed eating it too. I like your drawn frame and the lovely decorative matting layer. I picked up some orchard apples at the farmers' market when I visited my dad on Saturday, and am enjoying the rare treat of 'real' apples which taste as I remember.

Wowza Carla, such stunning coloring and what a beautiful apple you used. I bet it was very tasty too. Love the added gingham. I was going to add gingham to my card as well but found another paper that was already cut down, the gingham is such a perfect pattern for apples and looks great on your card.

Oh there is so much I love about this card! First your image is colored beautifully - and I love the die you used for the bg on the red, then the punch with the gingham ribbon running through!! Perfect card Carla!!!
