Inspired Again

As you can see...I am very inspired by this set! I even decided to give my blog a little face lift and used this cone flower image to design my new banner. I still have a little work to do on that...hopefully my son can help me with that later, because I couldn't figure out how to make the other changes I wanted to make. ;-)

To ink this image I colored right on my stamp with Summer Sun, More Mustard, Old Olive & Chocolate Chip markers. Before I stamped the image I misted it lightly with a spray of water to give kind of a watercolor feel to it. Be careful not to use too much water, or it could turn into a muddy mess...don't ask my how I found that one out! ;-)

I thought the little bee from Bloomin' Beautiful would be a nice addition, so I stamped him/her? in Basic Brown so I could add a bit of watercolor. Lastly, I lightly sponged the background with Not Quite Navy to add a bit of sky.

Since it's starting to feel a lot like fall around here, (and I'm Inspired by Nature, after all hehe) I used More Mustard for my card base and used the Floral Background inked in the same. A bit of Chocolate Chip grosgrain ribbon and a couple Earth Element brads finish off this ensemble.

Have a wonderful day!
