ATC365 #16 APPLE

Another night of high winds and hail. Coastal living is certainly exciting!

Mr Generator has given me the word APPLE today. I am blessed! I have a huge amount of other things to do today, most of them non-craft related, so the word I was given this morning has made my day start fairly gently.  Posting this and then I will get the housework out of the way so I can disappear into my craft cave all weekend!

This APPLE ATC started out as a mistake. The card I had coloured a few months ago was supposed to be a medley of yellow and orange but somehow I managed to dip my brush into the dark green! Before realising my mistake I had splattered the Brusho green all over it. I know there is only a little bit of green on the ATC but I have a full A3 sheet coloured like this!

I used a lovely apple stamp which works really well with the watercolour style. The area of green on the card was covered with a cut out leaf and the apples are stamped directly onto the ATC using black archival ink. I enhanced the apples with a little more paint and stamped a delicate leaf pattern on the background to make it look like wallpaper. Shadow was added using a grey ProMarker. 

Finally I stamped the word APPLE onto a another scrap of yellow card and added it to the ATC.

Right, my house isn't going to tidy itself. I wish it did! Nice to see you again and hope that you will keep with me on this journey.

Happy Days! Kim
