One seed can start a garden, one candle can light a room, one step can begin a journey, one conversation can start a friendship, one smile from a handmade card can lift one's SPIRIT!

Inked Day 4 Colorful Stamped Accents

Maile demonstrated how you can take a project up a notch by adding pops of color using inks and stamps.  The first thing she did was take out the die for Boutique Borders:  Thanks and cut it four times and stamped three of them with different colors.  Then she cut each of the three in thirds.  I used Terra cotta Tile, memento london fog, and ocean tides and cut them up, then glued them down onto the fourth die cut piece.  I adhered it with foam tape.  I stamped the birthday sentiment with terra cotta tile and placed the strip on top.  I added some pieces of pattern paper on each side of the white to help bring in some color.  I also added some bling that I colored with copics to bring in the orange.
