A pear for you.

This stamp set is from the hostess section, level II from Stampin' Up! I chose this one because I already have the other one and I wasn't really sure about it but I think I'll like it. :) I stamped the pear in versermark and then in chocolate chip and embossed it with clear embossing powder. I masked two pears behind it and embossed those as well. This was done on SU! watercolor paper. I watercolored with the SU! markers and an auqua painter. I used apricot appeal and more mustard. I cut out the 3 pears and embossed the entire full pear by itself. I used very vanilla and stamped the three pears the same way and colored it in with apricot appeal solid. I used one thickness of stampin' up! dimensional under the 2 side pears and two thickness for the middle pear.

I used more mustard and chocolate chip to mat the pears. I popped up the more mustard from the chocolate chip with dimensionals. I used chocolate chip and stamped the leaves randomly on apricot appeal. i wrapped the chocolate chip 5/8" grossgrain ribbon around the whole thing and thread it through the two slots I made and tied it.
Pretty simple but I like how it turned out. :)
