This sweet little lady has been working hard gathering a basket full of apples for her teachers. You can find this wonderful clear stamp image designed by Elisabeth Bell included FREE as a set of three Pretty Ladies with three additional floral hair piece stamps in the July 2013 issue of QuickCards Magazine.
Here's a closer view of my Copic-filled image, hand-shaped as an apple. I've airbrushed my cloudy sky background using diecuts from My Favorite Things Die-namics Cloud Trio set as masks.
An older Stampin' Up! red apple patterned paper is layered with Bazzill cardstock to form my Whimsy Shape EZ Happy Apple shaped card. Faux stitching borders my card shape. A strip of old burlap provides a diagonal border behind my image with a Cuddly Buddly worm button from a "Mixed Garden Brights" set tied with hemp cord on one side and a gingham ribbon bow on the other.
A Marianne Design Craftables Passe-Partout Rectangle diecut is popped up to hold a Close To My Heart Seasonal Sensation set "For You" stamped sign and a Sizzix original small green Fruit die apple die cut from chipboard then coated with glossy accents. An additional hairpiece has been popped up and covered with glossy accents to hold her pony tail.
Here's a view of my completed card front showing my use of Elisabeth Bell's Pretty Lady with apple basket clear stamp image . . .
