The Male Room: Fruit

Today's challenge at the Male Room involves fruit. OK really how manly can fruit be?!!? But that why this is a challenge right?!!? Well first of, I don't have a lot of fruit stamps. It required a bit of rummaging through rarely used stamps. I found an old Hero Arts clear set- simply fresh.   It has been fun and surprising to find how many great stamp sets you can find on Amazon! Who knew?!!?

Back to today's challenge, I picked the apple from this awesome stamp set for a few reasons. One it is fall and that means it is prime apple season here in Pennsylvania, second there is the obvious or maybe not so obvious connection to the book of Genesis and lastly I really wanted to try my hand at coloring an apple with my copics.

Jane over at AAA cards suggested I link up to their challenge for embossing this week.

I kinda feel like I am cheating cos' it is just a very simply dry embossed with a folder. I usually try to stretch myself. But I will say that this particular folder is my go to when I want o add that little something to complete a card. I am sure you have something like that dontcha?Check out what the DT came up with over at AAA cards, some cool stuff!

If you check out the stamp set on line, you will notice I had to add the bite mark on my apple.

All I can say is if you don't like this card, well............ bite me!

I hope you will all play along at the Male Room with this fun and fruity challenge!
