Well here it is October and the fall weather is here. We are having unusually warm days, but the nights cool down and the sleeping is good, windows open!
This Tuesday, the challenge at Flourishes is a special one, as the winner will be the quest designer for December. They will pick 3 and you will vote for People's Choice on October 8th. Excited for that!
The challenge is to paper piece a stamp project. I went directly to the Pears stamp set as I have been wanting to paper piece that set as soon as I got it. I think that it lends itself to that nicely. So here is my card.

I stamped the pears onto pure ivory card stock,and fussy cut it out. Then I paper pieced the pears with a paper napkin that had the right colors for the fruit. The leaves, flowers and branch are colored with Copic markers. I used pop dots to give dimension to the focal image. A cuttlebug folder called, Cane Back Chair was used to emboss part of the pure ivory card stock layer and I sponged it with Tim Holtz Distress ink, tea dye and Vintage photo. That was layered onto brown and then a card base of Honey Mustard. The sentiment is from the Pears stamp set too.
I certainly appreciate any comments, so thank you in advance.
