Apples with Distress Markers
By:  Vickie Kertz, Artistic Guide

I made this card for a guy at work that was leaving.  Everyone said that one of hobbies was gardening and this was the closest I could come.  The design came from the trail map for July.  The main image is a Stampin' Up stamp from an older set called "For Father".  I stamped the image on watercolor paper with Jet Black Stazon.  I then colored with distress markers and did blending with a water pen.  I hate plain white edges and love distress pads so I did a little distressing around the edge of the image.

The accents in the background were done using an embossing folder that looks like wood.  After I embossed the image I just ran distress pads over the raised part of the embossing until I got a look I liked.  I also used a clear glaze pen on the word "apples" just to make it stand out a little.
