An Apple A Day


I could hardly WAIT to ink up this new set from Impression Obsession! It's called An Apple A Day . I think it's an adorable set...and this card will be just perfect for my sweet little grands this Halloween!

I stamped the main image on watercolor paper using Onyx Black Versafine ink, then embossed with JudiKins Detail Clear embossing powder. The stamped image was colored with Tombow (water based) markers. I accented here and there with a Stardust Clear gelly roll pen for a little sparkle.



The sentiment was cut and framed with my circle Nestabilities.

After putting the card together I added a layer of JudiKins Diamond Glaze to the top layer of caramel on each apple to give it a glazed appearance. You MUST do this last so you don't smudge the Diamond Glaze while it's drying. (This is the voice of experience here!) LOL!

I added Christmas Red Stickles to the dots on the apple on the right. It added a bit more dimension and sparkle.

I hope you all had a fabulous Friday, and are planning a wonderful weekend.

Thanks again for stopping by!
