Alcoholic Pear?

Click on image to enlarge

Today's post is my entry for Sketch and Stash Challenge #3. This challenge is always a two parter - the sketch and using either new stash or something you haven't used for ages. I'm using up some bits that I had left from yesterday's card and an image I had ready that I did when I was doing the tutorial for adding colour to stamped images. The alcohol ink background paper happens to be a perfect colour for the pear which is from rubbadubbadoo. The new stash is the flowers from the Elusive images Floral Fantasy themeplate and is the next size up from those I used on yesterday's card. The gold mirri and textured card stocks were bits that were left over from previous projects. The pear was coloured using pastel pencils which were blended using baby oil.
Hope you like my card made from leftovers and thank you for your visit today.
