KLM Designs: Americana Apple

September 1st is New Release Day at KLM Designs. This Americana Apple is one of the images that will be released. I colored it with Prismacolor pencils and OMS and then went over the whole thing with Antique Linen distress ink to give it that vintage look. I really love how this softened the white. I then used Stardust Stickles to give the stars some glimmer. I stamped the flourish from Fancy Flourishes in Enchanted Evening ink. The Scarlet Jewel cardstock was punched with the star Tonic boot punch and then with an EK Success border punch. I added some star bling inside of the star punch outs. The border and the apple were both adhered to the card with foam tape to give them a little dimension.

Thanks for taking the time to stop by today. I am off to make Chocolate Amish Friendship Bread so my son stops bugging me. ;) Have a blessed day!

Fantastic and creative card. I love your use of the star punch in combination with the border punch. :)
