Stamping 411, I would use my new Inchie Set. Well, as you can see by the sketch, I had the perfect spot to put my inchie . . . but oh, which one to use?
I decided to begin by browsing through my designer series paper. As soon as I saw this woodgrain paper from the paper pack called Woodland Walk, my decision was made . . . the owl would win the race to be the first inchie to see ink!
I had my card almost put together, but at the last minute . . . I decided that my background needed something extra and that is when I remember my new stamp set called Paisley Prints. All of the demonstrators attending Convention this year got this stamp set and the matching wheel FREE! It was the perfect touch to brighten up my background. I stamped the leaves in Early Espresso ink . . . I didn't think I could find a brown ink that I would like better than Chocolate Chip, but Early Espresso proved me wrong! I LOVE this deep, rich color. Another color that I love is the new In Color called Concord Crush . . . look at how awesome it looks with More Mustard! I made a bow with some Natural Hemp Twine for a sweet little accent.
