Clearly Inspired Challenge #10

It's Friday, and it's time for the Clearly Inspired Challenge going on over at ClearlyiStamp! This week's challenge is a sketch challenge. I just love sketch challenges! I used some new papers I received last week along with my Tangy Trio set from Clear Dollar Stamps. I had this awesome chipboard piece sitting in my stash just begging to be used, so I covered it in paper and distressed it a bit. I tried the Rock n' Roll technique on my card, but it's not very easily seen in the picture. I don't think the colors I chose were different enough. The pears in my circles were covered with a dimensional glaze to give them some shine. Fun sketch, huh?
CDS Stamps: Tangy Trio
Ink: Certainly Celery, Mellow Moss, Chocolate Chip
Paper: Crate Paper Brook dp, unknown cardstock, Neenah Solar White
Accessories: Curly Label punch, half back pearls, sponge, dimensional glaze, chocolate ribbon
