Thanks A Bunch *Heartfelt Creations*

Be sure to check more inspiration from the Heartfelt Creations Designers HERE.

I started with a sketch by Mojo Monday. Papers are from Marrakech by Basic Grey.

I colored this 787 G Wishing Well Unmounted Rubber Stamp with Prismacolor pencils and blended with odorless mineral spirits. I colored the roses orange because I was trying to match some Authentique paper. Didn't work out so I went with Marrakech... What do you think of the color scheme?

I stamped the sentiment with Archival ink and accented with Distress Ink.

This looks completely different than the pic you sent me - I guess it's all about good lighting! Love it, and you outdid yourself with that stamp!
