Funny Fruits stamp set

I’m back again with Technique Tuesday Funny Fruit stamp set!! I had fun creating with it yesterday, that I wanted to create another clean and simple card using this set.

Here’s how I created this card:

  1. Die cut the card base using Neat & Tangled Scalloped die.
  2. Use the Misti to stamp the pears and the sentiment at the same time.
  3. Color the pears using Tombow Recycled Color Pencils.

Done! Talk about fast, that was 1-2-3!
