New challenge at The Stamp Man

Wow it is hard to believe a fortnight has gone by already since the last challenge at The Stamp Man. There were so many lovely monochromatic projects to look at I am sure it will be hard to choose a winner. Janet has chosen this Fortnights challenge and the theme is "Pears" or "pairs" so there are many ways that could be taken and explored upon. I chose to use "Pears". I started by stamping the edges with The corner stamp from Tim Holtz Urban Tapestry stamp set then Embossing with Obsidian Copper Moon Glow EP. The Branch is made using the tree from Tim Holtz Winter Sketchbook stamp set. I stamped it separately and then colored it in with promarkers and cut out a portion and glued in place on the card. The Pears are cut from napkins in my US Artquest Napkin Collage kit. They are then decoupaged into place. the dimensional leaf was placed on card then cut and adhered to create dimension. For my full materials list and links please see below.
Now Over at The Stamp Man we are also welcoming our newest member to the team...Siobhan at Recovering Stampaholic. Siobhan has been delighting us with her wonderful works of art for some time now in our challenges and we are very pleased to have her as part of our wonderful team. For Siobhan's project and the rest of the teams wonderful works please visit the Stamp Man Challenge Blog where you can also upload your project link and check out the rules. Remember one lucky winner will receive a great GC for The Stamp Man shop. We can't wait to see your takes on the challenge.

Now stepping a little sideways.. Did you happen to notice the lovely flower arrangement behind my card in the photo? If not here it is in full. this was made by my daughter in her first gardening class at her new school. When she signed up for gardening she though dirt, digging, planting and such but it turns out that they are doing flower arranging and didn't she do a lovely job! I am thrilled to have such a beautiful piece to look at each day and for now special occasion to boot. Love it.

As promised here is my materials list for my card:
Tim Holtz Winter Sketchbook stamp set(tree)

Now I shall leave you to go visit The Stamp Man Challenge and see all the other Lovely works of art from our fab team and please be sure to give Siobhan a warm welcome.
Have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by. Angela

I love your napkin pears. They are beautiful and your stamped frame sets them off beautifully.

Linda and I missed you and your very lovely and talented daughter at Beamsley last weekend.
