Life Is Full of Beauty

One of the things I really like about having a Misti stamping platform is the way it allows me to stamp an image again and again. Usually I do that because the image isn't complete, or not as crisp as I'd like. Today I did the repeat stamping so I could add a bit of another color to my design in addition to the first color.

I started with a piece of subtle designer paper - it was a soft subtle color and had little lines that I chose to make vertical. I used the Unity Hit the Brick background stamp and stamped the entire piece of designer paper using Lawn Fawn Walnut Ink. Then I added a bit of Lawn Fawn Manatee ink in random spots on the stamp and stamped again. Lastly, I did the same thing using Lawn Fawn Hippo Ink.

Once I was satisfied with the bricks, I was ready to complete my card, using the gorgeous floral arrangement in the Unity In My Garden stamp/die set.

The sentiment is from another Unity stamp set - Moments in bloom.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today!
