Flourishes Fruit Challenge

This week's Timeless Tuesday challenge over at Flourishes is FRUIT!  I posted a similar card back in February but this one has a more creative die cut.  The Basic Grey Origins paper is just a perfect match for these pears and, it is just about my favorite paper.
When I first got this set I colored a bunch of this image and die cut them.  It was really fun to color something so large and I was able to do some real shading.  Flourishes images make it easy to see where the darker shading should go by adding hatchmarks to the images.
  • Stamps: Flourishes - Pears
  • Ink: Memento - Tuxedo Black, Versafine - Onyx Black
  • Paper: Neenah - Solar White, Basic Grey - Origins 6x6, PTI Black Cardstock
  • Spellbinders - Labels 20
  • Other: SU! Lucky Limeade ribbon, black brads, ABS, Copics
