Hello There

Happy Easter and thanks for taking the time to stop by my blog!

I have been in the coloring mood lately. Yesterday I had a little unexpected extra time and I just sat at my desk and colored. I also feel like I have been in a color combo rut! You know, you tend to have your favorite colors you use over and over. So I decided to play along with the Inspired by All the Little Things Challenge. I love the succulents and these are colors rarely use. 

Here's my take on the challenge using Taylored Expressions Simply Succulents Stamp & Die Combo. 

I colored the plants with Copic Markers and die cut them out with the dies in the Simply Succulents Stamp & Die Combo. Next I used the Brick Embossing Folder to build steps to set the plants on. I highlighted the bricks a bit with Copic Markers in E41 and E43 and Distress Ink in Antique Linen.

The sentiment is from the stamp set. The final touch is a few scattered 4mm Clear Droplets from Pretty Pink Posh. 

Thanks for stopping by!
