Here's a close up of the stitching - not sure you can tell it in the picture but I traced around the caramel with a yellow marker and around the apple with a red one -- just to add a bit of "depth" to it. I also tapped a brown ink pad all over the caramel to add a bit of texture.
- Red/Brown cardstock
- Popsicle stick
- Green felt
- for leaves
- Cream Ribbon
- Scripture stamp
- Brown ink pad
- tapped on caramel and inked edges of apple with
- White pencil
- that "shiny" spot on the caramel
- Black felt tip pen
- faux stitching
- Yellow/Red marker
- traced around caramel and apple with
this apple as a template (since I needed a bigger one than Stamp N Design had) and free-handed my dripping caramel.
I also used my bleach pen (that my sister in law brought me) to stamp the verse on the tag --- I'm having fun experimenting with it! Here's a closer view of the tag:
Will you indulge me one more pic?
In case you can't tell -- I really, really enjoyed making these. After I made the big one for the bulletin board --- I just had to make another little one -- this time with the patterned paper.
