Winter Apple

The apple stamp is from the same set as the pear on the previous card. This SCS challenge was to try the faux silk technique, which is basically just stamping on tissue paper (the type used in gift bags), crumpling it up, smoothing it out and sticking to a piece of cardstock. The "twist" was to stamp the same image on another color of cardstock to give it "pop". I used red c/s for the apple and green c/s for the leaf, cut each piece out and adhered to the back of the tissue image. I wanted the leaf color to match the paper a little better, so I lightly colored it with marker right on the tissue.
