Very Cherry Berry Day!

Welcome to Taylor's sketch challenge friday! I have this set "cherries and berries" from her store that I just LOVE....I definitely have a "cherry" thing going on in my head. I've seen this stamp set done with a lot of "cute" paper and it looks adorable...but today I wanted to make this set look vintage. I stamped my cherries and then masked the little corner so that I could stamp the circle border. I then colored my cherries with my copics, highlighting the shadows in the bottom with my garnet spica pen. Then I airbrushed the image so that my paper was no longer white. All the accessory paper is Webster's pages....isn't it yummy!

Here is a close shot of the cute lil' pitcher. These maya road chipboard shapes are adorable! I just picked my favorite part of the paper to cover it with. Can you see the bits of garnet colored spica pen on there...it just adds the needed "pizaz" for this element.
Here is my full supply list,
Stamps:
Berries and Cherries (Taylored Expressions)
Ink:
Tuxedo Black Memento (Tsukineko), Denium Adirondack (Ranger)
Paper:
Petite Papers (Webster's Pages), White (Prism)
Accessories:
Markers, Garnet Spica Pen, Air Brush System (Copic)
Chipboard Pitcher (Maya Road)
Ribbon (Making Memories)
Glossy Accents (Ranger)
Safety Pin
Sewing




Ah-ha! I remembered to take a photo of the markers I used! The E50 was for airbrushing (the main image was stamped on white card stock so I needed to make it blend).

Here is the sketch so you can play along in TAYLOR'S challenge.
Don't forget to see what the rest of the sketch crew came up with:
Jami Sibley: More is More
Monika Davis: M.A.D. Stamper
