Woodware - Sketch Challenge

How is it, that within a week of getting back from holiday you feel like you need another one!! Never mind .... I am sure I will get over it!
This week at Woodware we are doing our monthly sketch challenge. It is a very simple one this time.

I got this fairly new Stampendous image "Orchard Pear" a couple of months ago and so I thought it was about time I actually used it. So I stamped and coloured it in. It is a lovely image and I didn't want to make it too fussy. 
For the background I decided to make my own instead of spending wasted time searching the stash for just the right paper! I used a ghosting resist technique. It is an easy way of achieving subtle layers on your background. I stamped a leaf sprig onto white card stock with white pigment ink. 

Once dry I then used a few shades of yellow and green Colorbox cat's eyes and a DTP method of applying the ink. Start with the lightest colours and blend over the card. Then buff with a bit of kitchen towel for the white resist to show through. I stamped the leaf again with a soft shade of green. Simple but effective.

Then a stamped sentiment and a few pearls to finish off!!

I think this image would look good in autumnal colours too. Remember to check out the Woodware blog to see what the other girls have done with the sketch.
