Fresh Apples

It's that time again..The Power Poppy Pop Goes the World Challenge. This week we travel to Portofino, Italy.  The challenge is to use the above pictured colors in your creation. Here is a link to the challenge: Power Poppy Pop Goes the World

 I chose the newly released Farmers Market stamp set. 

These apples are so fun to color.  I am a huge fan of apples. We planted 2 apple trees to memorialize a family member this last fall.  I didn't realize it takes 2-4 years for them to produce. I will just have to color this image while I patiently wait. 

I used turquoise, red, yellow and green to match the challenge rules this week.  We eat a lot of organic produce and I love that Marcella added the word organic to the apple crate. 

Copic colors I used are:  
 E30,35, 37

Here are the challenge rules:
