Trend Watch is Food Fresh!

Time once again for our Paper Smooches SPARKS Trend Watch Challenge!


         

I immediately thought of fresh red apples in a basket.


I stamped the Dapper background on a red card base with red ink to create the look of a basket pattern. The tree and birdie - from the Spring Groves set - are stamped on patterned paper, trimmed and paper pieced. The wooden sign - from the Happy Camper set - is stamped on woodgrain cardstock and shaded with Copics.  I used the Alphadots set to stamp "U Pick". 

Apples are from the Gently Seasoned set - stamped on red cardstock and shaded just a little with a red marker.  Then I trimmed them out and covered with glaze. The eye on the birdie is also covered with glaze :)


Go check out all the other trendy food fresh designs by our design team over on the Paper Smooches SPARKS Blog.  I'm sure you will find a cart full of inspiration!
