Serene Spring Hostess Set

Hi Everyone!

This is one of our new Hostess Sets that will appear in the new Fall and Winter Catalog coming soon. I've been so busy I haven't had much time to play with these. So I thought I would give this a try.

I stamped the canvas background stamp on Riding Hood Red cardstock with the same color just to give it a bit of texture. I then stamped the words randomly onto the background in Brown Timber Stazon, the words read; "A kind word is like a spring day". The image was stamped with Brown Stazon as well. I used Riding Hood Red, Pink Pirouette, Kiwi Kiss and Baja Breeze re-inkers to color with, along with my aqua painter. I used a Pure Color blue pencil on the butterfly and I did the pot with Pure Color Pencils and Odorless Mineral Spirits applied with blending stumps.

I really just wanted to see all the colors and play with them....aren't they pretty? I think I'll go back and work a bit more on my blending.

Have a Stampinglee Good Day!
