Cherry Thank you

I saw the enticing photo on the Inspired By Challenge…sweet on you and I had to make a literal version, something I rarely do. I’m also playing along with CAS(E) this Sketch #372 and the CAS Mix Up “Gesso” challenge.

I stamped with some gesso a wood stamp onto mix media paper. Once dry, I applied some Distress stains with the dobber top…remember those? I heat embossed an old spoon from Spellbinders Home Spun Shapeabilities set. The cherry die cuts are modified branches from the Little B Bouquet set, also heat embossed in red and embellished with some Glossy Accents. The vellum leaves are from this same set. The “Merci” (Thank you) die cut is so appropriate right now in this time of gratitude towards essential workers of the Pandemic.

Hope you are all well, both physically and mentally. Thank you “Merci” for stopping by, HUGz, Joanna

  2. Once again you have amazing texture and design on this sketch. I’ve always had difficulty with sketch challenges but you sure did master them. Love the use of embossing powders and color as well as the gesso wood grain.

  3. Oh, my, Jo. That tiny spoon and cherries are adorable and have so much dimension! I love the woodgrain panel they rest on that’s a perfect showplace, and those vellum leaves add a wonderful contrast of texture with the embossing! I think you have another winner her, my friend!
