Edit: The flecked look of ink over the pear image was done with a marker and SU!'s spritzer tool (I can't think of the technical name of the tool) . You could also use the Copic Airbrush System with a marker to achieve the same affect. Just one little spray is all you need.
Jordan asked me all summer...."Mom, have you ever had pears with honey?" I kept telling her no, I'm not a real pear fan. She said they were awesome and that Grandma Anne fixed them that way for her, straight off her pear tree. Then finally when the pears were ripe this summer, I got Jordan some Bartlett pears. We cut them up and drizzled on some honey. Oh were my taste buds happy! This is such an awesome snack, almost pretty enough to be a fancy dessert. I had to make a recipe card for Pears and Honey, not because I needed the recipe really, but because I wanted to remember Jordan's little story. I used Karen Lockhart's Pears stamp and colored all the pears with Copic Sketch markers, using a stipple type brush stroke. I just dotted the colors on instead of coloring neatly. This is what gives the pears that splotchy, sun kiss look...zoom in to get a better look. Patterned papers are from Wild Asparagus, just punched circles cut in half. Ribbon is Spring Moss from Papertrey Ink.
If you haven't tried pears with honey, add it to your list this week. Yummo!!!
