MOJO309 ~ Green Apples ~

This time of year, my mind turns to apples.  Apple cider, apple pie, apple turnovers...  YUM!!!  Nothing says Fall like a trip to the apple orchard!  Granny Smiths are one of my personal favs.  Not everyone likes their tart taste.  I recognize I am in the minority here.  So to honor my favorite fruit I colored these gems green! 

 
and the sketch that inspired it all...
 
 
I chose an apple green card stock and kraft paper for my matting.  I colored the image with Copics and highlighted each "apple" with a white gel pen.  I sponged a soft blue ink on the background to mimic sky.  I added a die cut sentiment with just a touch of jute for a rustic touch.  
 
Now I want some pie and ice cream!  :-)  
 
Thanks for stopping by!
