SHOPPING OUR STASH #271 - Apple for Teacher

Hello and welcome crafty peeps! This week at SHOPPING OUR STASH, we want you to make a Teacher Appreciation card, OR use fruits or veggies on your card or project. Because, that's how we roll! LOL! Here's the card I came up with:

here's the inside:

I knew I was going to use that sentiment, but needed a bunch of grapes to complete the image I had in my head for my card. Enter free clip art on the Google! That grape bunch is free clip art that I printed on the kraft panel, then colored using Prisma Color pencils. I used a white Gelly Roll pen for the highlights. I stamped the sentiment then doodled around it and the grapes. I know it looks wonky. but I wasn't going to re-do it, and, that's how I roll! LOL!

I hope you get a chance to play along this week at Shopping Our Stash! For more inspiration, please visit my teammies and our Guest Designer, Jennifer, and leave them some bloggy love!

Cute, not wonky! I really like the border... drawn? Hey, fermented grapes and distilled potatoes count as dinner while it's election season! (What tastes better when watching debates???)

Mimi said...

Yep... read again: you doodled that border. Just right.

Chris, as soon as I saw this card and read the sentiment, I just laugh!! what a fabulous way to drink your daily rations of fruits!!! Love it and, before I read how you did it, I thought the grapes, which look absolutely gorgeous, and the border around the images were stamped, love, love the wonkyness of this lines you drew, just fabulous.
I agree, I had some fermented hops last night with my hubby while watching the debate, I think this says enough!!! LOL!!

Love it! Great sentiment and you did an amazing job with that clip art bunch of grapes. Fabulous coloring with the prismas. Love the kraft background. And I think your wonky framework is the perfect touch. :D
