Autumn Pear

Here's a tag I made to play along over at Tag Tuesday.
This is a pear stamp that I have had for a while, and I love the image with the script behind it.   I inked all around it with distress ink, and painted it in with my Twinkling H2O watercolors. You can see how they sparkle on the lower part of the pear. I also layered on a splatter of Smooch Spritz.
 The sentiment says "Keep your faith in beautiful things: in the sun when it is hidden, in the spring when it is gone". I used that one because although I love this beautiful fall weather with cool nights and warm days that we have had recently here in New England, I am not looking forward to the colder temperature that will be coming soon!
