Three Serves of Fruit


As soon as I saw Taylor's sketch #39 I was hanging to give it a go. While I had a number of Christmas ideas going through my head I was determined to do something non-Christmas-y, so I pulled out Tart & Tangy (and yet... I have Christmas ideas for this set going through my head too!). In the end I went through a few paper/colour combinations before deciding to add chocolate to the mix and I am quite pleased with how it came out. To get the effect of the paler colour inside the apple and orange I inked the stamp up, stamped off onto scrap paper and then re-inked the edges with markers.
