Inspirational #110 Stamp Your Own Background

Kendra has challenged us this week on Red Rubber Inspirationals to stamp our own background.  This is fun, and sometimes challenging.  I get too accustomed to using patterned paper backgrounds, but we can make our own.  I've used Fly Fairy and Background Soup stamps sets from Red Rubber Designs to create this background.  I chose three colors to stamp with Palette inks - Burnt Umber, Raw Sienna, and Landscape.  Then I sponged the edges with more of the Raw Sienna color.  The image is colored with Copic markers, and I added a bow for accent beside the sentiment.

Copics - E01. E13, BV000, R21, YR21, YR23, YR24, YG61, YG63, YG67
