Good Works



This is a stamp set called Inspired by Nature. I received it at convention and it's not one I would have purchased on my own. I really like it though. I wanted the flowers to be the Riding Hood Red because I love this color. Stampin' Up! doesn't sell markers in the In colors so I tried to mostly ink up the flower images. Then I went back with a wet wipe and removed the red ink from the rest of the image and colored the stems and the middle of the flowers with my Chocolate Chip and Old Olive Stampin' write markers. The sentiment comes in the set along with the tall grass and another sentiment, "Live with Passion".

I'm off to get my haircut this morning. I was waiting until the kids went back to school so I didn't have to work around their schedules. It feels weird having them back in school but I'm sure I'll adjust!

What a lovely card Kathleen! It's not a set I would've picked either, but I am loving all the great cards everyone is doing with it!! Great idea to wipe off the red ink you didn't need and color in again - this is really a stunning card!
