An 'Oldie' Pear

Good Morning on a very wet day here in the east Midlands.

My card today was made quite a few years ago using a red rubber cling stamp which was stamped onto white card and then coloured in with Promarkers.  I stamped again and coloured one pear which was fussy cut, shaped and added with silicone glue for dimension.

I rubbed distress ink around the edge and stamped off a little on the background too.

The sentiment is by Paula Pascal and stamped onto a scrap of card which had been coloured with tea then I diecut with a small Marianne die.

I didn't realise when I made this how ragged the black matt was... oops!

As it's Friday I'm joining in with Erika on her Snappy Crafts blog where she invites us to share any craft  project from way back.  It doesn't have to be a card.   Link up with Erika and she'll visit you too.

I hope you all have a good day and enjoy your weekend, whatever your plans.

  1. Hi Barb,
    what a gorgeous Oldie today.
    Your colouring of the pears is ace.
    I love your very fab design, and the edges of the black card just make it look eveb more vintage also, as the image looks quite vintage I think.
    Have a wonderful weekend.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

  9. Beautiful card, Barb! I remember when pears were all the rage and I think they are coming back in vogue again! So this is a wonderful oldie to share! I wish I had taken photos of the cards I made a few years ago - I never thought to photograph them until I started my blog so you were very clever!

  18. I remember when pears were all the rage. I'll bet this card dates back to that time. However, it is still fresh and lovely today.

  27. Love this card, fab stamp and lovely colouring. I'm often guilty of ragged mats and uneven ones too even though I use perfect layer rulers , all adds to the handmade charm is my reasoning !
