Kitchen Inspired... OLW93

Hello, friends!!  Happy Friday!  Here with a card for the current One Layer Wednesday challenge (93).  OLW is another "just for fun" challenge that I used to do all the time and now I'm trying to get back into the habit of playing along each week.  This week Heather Telford is the challenge host and she has asked us to make a one layer card inspired by something in our kitchen.  I'm going to be real honest here, but I'm not one of those people who can look at something in their house and make a card based on it.  But I decided to have a go since I need to get outside my box.  


My card was inspired by a bottle of anti-bacterial hand soap from Bath & Body Works.  As I looked around my kitchen for something, anything, to inspire me, my eyes zeroed in on that bottle because of the lush pears on the label.  The scent of the hand soap is pears and let me tell you that soap really does smell like pears.... so yummy!  Anywhoo... inspired by the beautiful pears on the label I got out a Stampin Up! set called "Faith in Nature".  All of the images are a kinda collage style and one is of a pear.  I stamped the image using Memento Bamboo Leaves and then colored it with Copic markers (after coloring two test images to figure out exactly how to color the pear).  The sentiment is from the same set and was stamped using Memento Tuxedo Black.   I admit... not super inspired, but I'm trying!

Thanks for stopping by....

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white; Stamps:  Stampin Up!; Ink:  Memento; Copic Markers

It's really stunning, Rosemary! I can almost smell that pear, which is a favorite aroma of mine, AND, that stamp set, the pear especially, is a favorite of mine. Super CAS and super pretty!

Your card is lovely, especially your superb colour on the pear which is set off by all the crisp white space.
