Pears, Pears, Pears: In Many Colors and Coloring Techniques

Hello Dreamers,
Hope you are having a great day!  Very busy here with the house hunting, etc...  I wanted to share a group of cards I made using a artistic pear stamp (Pear Mosaic from The Artful Stamper).  I used different stamping and coloring techniques to make a diverse group of cards that are perfect for any occasion.
I find it so fun to see how different I can make one stamped image look.

I will post all the cards in two posts.  Here are all the pieces...

Which were turned into all these cards:

Card #1: Stamped with a bright green ink on green CS.  Colored by rubbing metallic rubs onto some of the areas of the stamped image.  Layered with tobacco green and gold metallic CS.  Add pretty ribbon.

Card #2:Stamped with a medium brown ink on White CS.  Colored by painting with Twinkling H2O's.  Layered with Yellow and brown CS.  Add pretty ribbon.

Card #3:Stamped with med blue/green ink on White CS.  Coloring done by filling in areas with a Versa Mark Pen and then applying chalks over the Versa pen ink. Layered with pink and green CS.  Add  pretty ribbon.

Card #4: Stamped with bright green ink on White CS.  No other coloring needed. Layered on a green card base.  Add pretty ribbon.

*******Entering my Double pair of Pear Cards into:
Simon's  Wednesday Challenge: Tie it up
Inspiration Destination: anything goes
Clear It Out: theme - anything goes; stash - anything goes. Used some coloring items that have been neglected.

I will be back in a couple days with the other cards in this group.  Have a sweet day!!  Love ya.
