Time Out Challenge #15 - Theme: Stamping with an Apple Twist

Hi everyone!  I missed the last Time Out Challenge...life took over when I went back to work after having the summer off!  Well now I'm right back into the swing of things and I have things under control.  This week over at the Time Out blog, it is our Theme challenge.  The theme is stamping and there's an optional twist to use apples.  Love apples!

I  had this never used apple stamp from Just For Fun that I purchased last year at a stamp show.  There's a name for this type of design, but it eludes me right now!  (Zentangle...thank you Gerrina!) Anyway, I stamped it in Memento so I could color it with copic markers.  After coloring it, I added some shimmer with a NEW Wink of Stella brush.  My old one was drying out and not giving me much shimmer.  This one is really shimmery!  I realized after I took the picture that part of the sentiment is covered up!  You can still figure it out, right?

I followed this sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch.

You can see more fabby inspiration from the Time Out design team on the Time Out blog.

We have Loll  joining us as our wonderful guest this week and are sponsored by Avocado Arts.  They are offering one stamp set as a prize.  To win all you have to do is enter and use the twist.  The winner will be chosen by Random.org. 

Thanks for stopping by!
