A Bushel and a Peck!

Hi, everyone!  How about another sneak peek of a new set by Our Daily Bread designs?  This is simply called "Apples".....I LOVE this set and will wear it out for sure!!  Isn't this the sweetest sentiment?!

This week's Inspiration Challenge over at Splitcoast is to choose an item from the Eskayel store......I chose this fabric with rust, red, and green patterns.  The Friday Free4 All Challenge was to use primary colors red, blue, yellow, or a combination of them....I used red, blue and blue+yellow=green!

How did I create this scene?  The "Apples" image was stamped in Stazon Jet Black permanent ink onto a square white piece of cardstock and also onto a piece of scratch paper.  The scratch paper image was cut out (just inside the lines) and placed over the image on the cardstock as a mask (to protect the image while the background was sponged).  I cut a long rounded piece from another piece of scratch paper with my craft knife in order to sponge the grassy hill.  The clouds were sponged over the edge of a punched scallop circle.  After all of the sponging was done, the mask was removed from the apple bushel and the image was partially watercolored and the rest was colored with markers. Paper piercing was added, along with baker's twine and red gemstones, then popped up over a rust-colored card.
