I really love this. It will definitely find it's way on to a card!!
I am entering it as a double challenge, for My Time to Craft - a little birdie told me - and Mixed Media Monday - fruit, chosen by Hermine, whose own offering is lovely. I have stamped this one with the Partridge in a Pear Tree theme plate, by Elusive Images, in saddle brown stazon. I masked the tree, after embossing it with gold ep, and printed the script pear 4 times, and coloured in with Sakura pens.
The bird and large pear in the centre are raised on 1cm pads, and the whole is distressed with my usual old paper and brushed corduroy. I used A Field of Sky, by A Stamp in the Hand, to add pitted looking dots, to help the aged look and mounted the whole on a sheet of my fav DCWV Fairy Tale paper. Thanks for looking, I appreciate all the comments I get!!
