Apple Days with Polkadoodles

It's Tuesday and time for a sale at Polkadoodles and a new challenge over at DigiChoosday. The Design Team's challenge for this week was to create an unusual shaped card with any Autumn or Halloween image. I choose Winnie - Sunshine Delight Delicious as my main image for my card:
I wanted to create an apple filled background and to do that I watercolored 3 bushels of apples from the Autumn/Fall Digi Stamps - Mono - Bundle. My go-to watercolor for digi stamps: 1) Design and resize images in a Word.doc,  2) print on Ranger Watercolor Paper using my Brother laser printer, 3) Watercolor with Kuretake Zigs Clean Color Real Brush Markers.
For this card, my "unusual" shape is from a large flag die I have had in my stash for many years. I finished with hand stitching all the edges using a .05 Pigma Micron pen - an Archival Ink pen. Also, added some white highlights with a #10 Sakura White Gelly Roll Pen, sparkle with Wink of Stella, Nuvo Glaze Crystal Clear and finished with a quote from Winnie - Special Moments.

Fun card to make and good practice coloring apples!
