The Perfect Pear {Avery Elle}

Hello friends,
I am on the Avery Elle blog today with a card I made using the Berry Good stamp set

I tried a little "no line" watercolor technique with my Berry Good cards, and I was really pleased with the outcome.  Using Distress ink, I stamped the pears with a light ink before watercoloring the images with distress ink smooshed onto an acrylic block.  I added a bit of shading under the fruit and once the image was dry, I stamped the sentiment.  Before adhering the watercolor panel to the card, I die cut the edge using the Dotted Borders Elle-ments die

Below are a couple more examples I shared previously using watercolor and Berry Good. 

Be sure to stop by the Avery Elle blog for even more inspiration!
