It took me a while to figure out what I wanted to make for my first Twilight Tuesday Challenge but this is what I came up with using the sketch provided :) It was alot of fun to make.
I made the background paper and wrote a tutorial that you can check out here. For the checkered part I used black and white cardstock and weaved it together. I drew the apple out on cardstock and cut it out. The shine of the apple is in white gel pen and white colored pencil. I drew the swirls on with a sharpee. The circle around the apple is actually Silver oragami paper :) I used my sewing machine to sew around the outside edge of the card with white thread. And finally I attached some ribbons and a sparkly bow. The background has metallics in it and shines. I couldnt really get a great pic of it to show off all of the shine and dimension :) This was a great challenge though.. for my FAVORITE topic .lol.
This is the sketch supplied by Twilight Tuesday..
