I do love a good punny sentiment and this set from Wplus9 is perfect, or should that be pear-fect :D Talking of play on words I had to add my little cactus in the background. I always think of prickly pears when I think of cacti! Not that that either the pear or my cactus fit with this, but hey, it kept me amused when I was taking the pictures LOL.
The Punny Produce Pears set is so easy to use to get really great sketchy looking images. The outline is stamped in black and then the solid image for the pear body is stamped in Mint and the leaf in Green Leaf, both from Simon Says Stamp. It was as simple as that :D The sentiment is stamped to overlap and then I splattered a little black and gold spray. I am so late to the washi party but I am enjoying using a little on my projects recently so wrapped a little Mint Chevron around the side of the panel. I cut the scallop from Green Leaf card using the Frames dies from Simon Says Stamp. I think I use these dies on almost all my recent projects – so flexible.
The last touches were a few sequins and a quick zig zag stitch. Isn’t it weird how you go through phases? A while back I stitched on my cards a lot; often all the way around the edge of a mat. Then my sewing machine gathered dust for ages and now I’m back to adding a little stitching, but just an accent here and there :D I’d love to hear if you’ve revisited an old favourite :D
