Apple of knowledge

Green apple card

I used acrylic
colours + crackle glaze to get a crackle effect on
my card.

The leaves are made with my home-made rubber stamp.
(Look below for more info.)

Handmade rubber stamp made from an eraser

How to create your own rubber stamp - the easy way:
1. Draw an image on a white eraser with a pencil. 
2. Use a pair of sharp, small scissors for
carving out
the fine lines. Use a knife for carving out the large areas.
N.B. Here's a more
detailed tutorial.
