Kick Back stamp set!)
When I inked these fruits, I used two colors on most of them. The apples are a combination of Holiday Red, and Tulip. The shading is subtle (a little more noticeable in person, but still subtle.) I used Sweet Leaf and Pear on the Pear, and Sunflower and Orange on the orange. Start with the lighter shade, ink up your stamp, and then just roll the edges into the darker color. I LOVE the play with this technique!!!! I trimmed the fruit, and popped the orange segment up on foam tape for a little dimension. Simple and sweet!
As I was browsing the catalog, i found another set that would be really fun to use this technique. For a very bold look, what about a Fourth of July card featuring red and blue fireworks? (Try American Celebration!)
I hope you have time to get inky this weekend!!!! Have a sweet time!
