Tuscan Bouquet

Sunday, August 7, 2011

My parents have this wonderful Tuscan vase.  Everywhere I go I look for something similar for my home.  That was the inspiration for the inking of this pitcher stamp.  I used Dandelion on the top portion of the stamp and Pear Tart for the bottom portion.  Then I used the Ripe Avocado ink pad to swipe color from the edges of the stamp inward.  I love that each time I tried it I got a slightly different look.

Thanks for coming by today. 
Have a lovely, relaxing Sunday!


Cardstock:  PTI Vintage Cream, Fine Linen, Harvest Gold
Stamps: PTI Iconic Images, Peaceful Garden
Ink: PTI Tea Dye Duo, Ripe Avocado, StazOn Brown, Memento Dandelion, Pear Tart
