Peary Christmas

This is one of my favorite cards I made with the summer CHA release stamps from Impression Obsession.

I stamped the background in Colorbox Fluid Chalk Ink- Rose Coral. The pear was stamped in Colorbox Fluid Chalk Ink Olive Pastel. I smudged a little ink from both ink pads (and a little Colorbox Fluid Chalk ink – Lime Pastel)onto a paper plate. I added a little water and used the chalk inks to watercolor my pear.  After it was dry I cut the pear out and added it to my card with foam tape. I rounded the corners of my card and sponged with Lime Pastel ink around the edges. I added a bit of lace to finish my card.

My card uses D7729 Pear and L14031 Christmas Word Background
