Anatomy of a Pear

I have always LOVED this stamp. Funny, I am not stuck on eating pears IRL but I LOVE artistic pears and have several stamps. This one hovers between a botanical drawing and a science lesson-so cool!

I coloured this ages ago so I am sorry, I have no idea of the Copics I used but I was delighted to see that they match Earth Love DP perfectly!  And even better, the yellow matches SU! banana CS perfectly! I always have such a hard time matching CS to Cosmo Cricket papers since I mostly keep SU! CS on hand. Wasabi, an old In Colour matches well too. The brown strip above the ribbon is a strip of CS, I think it looks rather striking.

Enjoy, Rebecca

I wish I could learn doing this. I love creating stuff but I get too many ideas and so little time...

I love that pear and weirdly I don't have any fruit stamps, will have to look in to getting some :). I love the colours you've used too, would look great for a harvest festival
