You're On My Mind

Ahhh, new stamps. The beautiful clean rubber and wood... the excitement of creating something completely new using something you have never used before - the feeling is something magical to me. So I played with colors that are Earthy and warm since the weather is finally getting cooler and Fall is officially in the air now, and here's what I came up with: To create depth in the flowers, I used my SU! markers directly on the rubber, in both Summer Sun and More Mustard. Then I went over a few areas in Summer Sun directly to the cardstock to blend, and I am really happy with the results! I also dug out my old Hodgepodge hardware kit and used a couple of the pieces I've been hoarding for a couple of years. Ahh, to use what I have is a beautiful thing!

Sets: Inspired by Nature, Upsy Daisy
Colors: Chocolate Chip, More Mustard, Garden Green
Other: Hodgepodge in Aged Copper, Mustard and Chocolate Chip grosgrain ribbon
