The paper is that ever present Basic Grey Sugared 6x6 pad. I love it - every single design! I paired it up with some PTI cardstock. I've found that a lot of my personal stash works with the Basic Grey. The stamp is a Unity Co. stamp called My What a Beautiful Tree! Its a large stamp and didn't need its full size so I just stamped it off my cardstock. Are you curious as to what I did with the coloring? I have to be honest and say that I'm not sure I'll ever do it again, but I was experimenting.
So what I did was stamp my image with Memento Ink then used my Copics to outline my shape. They I took my blender pen and went over the ink like crazy. My goal was to give it a thready look - I guess like a watercolor affect.
Well, thanks for stopping by and I hope you had a good week. I can't believe its Friday already.
