First off, yay for 3 day weekends! Woot! This last week was particularly trying with the ice rain on Monday and Tuesday, and then the brief warm-up, and then finally back to a mostly winter-like -15 or so.
I felt like using the Teacher's Apple set. But I really wasn't feeling the red, I thought I'd make a Granny Smith apple. I inked up the stamp first with Spring Moss, then applied a bit of shading with Ripe Avocado. I added in brown for the stem, then I realized that my colour scheme was set- Chocolate, Moss, and Avocado. I thought using ribbon, but I wanted a really sharp, clean edge, so I went with thin strips of cardstock. You get a similar effect and used some of the spindly scraps that were next to my paper cutter.
