TIO #22 - FRUITS

Hello from a lovely sunny Cornwall!!!
The lovely Frankie is back &continuing her TAG IT ON CHALLENGES!. This week she has asked us to use the theme of FRUIT.  We have to use at least one stamp...I had to scratch my head a bit for this one (no it wasn't fleas hahaha).  I found a pear stamp in my Christmas box, although I found it hard to get the colours right...a bit more green I think!!!  Oh & we had to use the right colours too!


Sadly the picture doesn't do the tag justice.  It sort of glows when you look at it!!!  The base was covered in mustard seed DI, overstamped with a Sir Tim floral stamp & then glimmer misted in gold...hence the glow hahaha  I also embossed round the edge in gold.

The pears have been watercoloured then glittered & some GA added to the leaves.  This was a tricky one for me & I feel it lacks something...not sure what tho.  Thank you for looking XXX

This looks wonderfully rich and lovely, Karen - beautiful job. If you did anything else at all to it, you might think about a bit more visual weight at the bottom. Maybe a crackle texture stamp or some flourishes in a deeper yellow/ochre tone in the bottom half of the tag? Tricky with the gems attached though and it looks just great as it is so I'd just go with it!
