Sketch Friday!

Some fun techniques to share with you today for friday's sketch challenge. I wanted to give a real homespun feel to this card to go with the sentiment. I figured the designer woodgrain stamp would be my "fire" in this quote and the apple would be the "food". They are both stamps from Hero Arts....love em'! You can find this woodgrain backgrounder HERE and the fruit engravings clear set HERE at Ellen's shop!

To the techniques....I stamped the woodgrain with versacraft ink onto a piece of canvas, fraying the edges a little before stitching onto my card base.
For the apple....it is stamped on a Jenni Bowlin label and then I filled my aqua painter with copic colorless blending solution and painted in the colors and shadows using the palette technique.
These look like the YUMMY honey crisp apples I have sitting on the counter right now! Oh how I love farm fresh apples....straight from the orchard (Willowview Farms) to be exact.

I love this sentiment...and I strive for it in our home too...it is a rub-on from Melissa Frances. The little stick pins were blue, I colored them with my E49 marker...

Here is the sketch so you can play along in TAYLOR'S challenge.
