pears and polka dots

i'm having fun today with clear microbeads, gold mica flakes, a multicolor ink pad, a dauber, clear gel glue and dimensional gloss medium!

i found a new weekly craft challenge blog that i like called the play date cafe. this week's color palette to work with is cinnamon, squash, vanilla and sage.

this 3.5" x 5.5" card was an experiment in surface design using the circular shape of a small fingertip dauber sponge and pigment inks. press hard for darker color, press lightly for a hint of color.

i've also been obsessed with pears these days...eating them, drinking the juice, as well as stamping and embellishing them in my work.

i just love the pear shape, don't you? click here to see my video tutorial to learn how to make the pear embellishment.
