Blueberries


I had an old At Home America catalog sitting down in my stamping room...and thought maybe I could find something in there as inspiration. Well, they had some "kitchy" canvases and one had blueberries. Seeing as I don't have a blueberry stamp...I made my own from a hostess reward stamp set from The Angel Company called Truly Blessed. I first used bashful blue and then just tapped the edge with Night of Navy to get some shading on the berries. I drew in the veins of the leaves and the stems and then touched everything to the canvas background stamp with creamy caramel ink. The other stamp set I used is Circle of Friendship from SU! Cardstock: base is a neutral from Wal-Mart, Basic Black, Ruby Red, and Night of Navy. The "rivet" is popped up with a dimensional. I distressed the main image...crumpled it up, touched it in the creamy caramel ink pad and rubbed it up and down the edge of my counter top. Thanks for looking...I sent this to my favorite uncle for his birthday.
