Inspired by Nature

I just had to break out this set after seeing the beautiful cards my friends Lisa and Kristin were making with it! My mojo is missing, so I did what I always when this happens: go back to super simple old favorite layouts, or case the catalog. In this instance, I went back to an old layout that is sooooo simple and easy. I used sponges to ink the flower in pink pirouette, then sponged on some riding hood red and chocolate ink. I colored the stem with the olive marker, and popped up the whole main image layers with dimensionals. I hope my mojo returns soon, I got some swaps to be working on!!

Thanks for stopping by!

Supplies:
stamps - Inspired By Nature, Fresh Cuts
paper - pink piro, RH red, ww
ink - pink piro, RH red, chocolate, olive marker
acc - olive twill ribbon, dimensionals

WoW! This is absolutely gorgeous! If this card was made when you have no mojo, I can't wait to see what you create when it comes back!! Becky, you've enabled me, since I hadn't thought to buy this set before I saw your card! Keep 'em coming!
