thanks and fall pear 16

Mona Pendleton | Sunday, September 17, 2017 @ 2:58 PM | ,

Hi! Today I have a few projects to share. Up first, is a rather clean and simple thank you card that I made for a dear friend. I'm playing along with the Lift Challenge where the challenge is to create a text with alphabet dies or chipboard and partially create a pattern / image with stamps.
I die cut the letters x 2 using dies from my stash, randomly stamped floral images from various PTI stamp sets, adhered the layers together then adhered them to the card from. So simple! I'm looking forward to repeating this technique.
For color inspiration, I'm joining along with the Sunday Stamps challenge where You must use a minimum of 3 colors from the graphic below, plus you may also use a neutral of your choice. 
Up next is an 8" x 10" oil painting featuring a fall pear:
I'm linking my painting to the Paint Party Friday and the 30 in 30 Day 17 sites:
Thanks so much for stopping by ~ stay safe!
Be Sweet ;)
