All things of Nature

Have you ever gone to your closet and said, "I don't have a thing to wear!" We know that is not true, the closet is filled with clothes- it's just nothing we want to wear. Well, last night I stood in front of my stamps and mentally said, "I don't have a thing to stamp." Well, that is soo not true!! And then in a split second something caught my eye- All things of Nature. It has been awhile since I showed these lovely birds some loving AND, I didn't even reach for my Prismacolor pencils and OMS this time!! (I know you all are in total shock!! LOL)
I created the background with Curls and swirls and clear embossing powder. The image was sprayed with Pearl Glimmer Mist after it was stamped. (Lesson learned- Palette Ink works much better than the ink I used!!!! This ink wanted to run.) And the ribbon is a very close match IRL. This was another "assembly line" card. Now I just have to make my way to the mail box in the rain to send them on there merry way.
Thanks for stopping by!!
Until later~

Beautiful card Lisa.
Got rain there too, huh? We have been having very cold wet weather this past week, much colder than usual. YUCK!

Absolutely beautiful, Lisa! I LOVE the tone-on-tone blue embossing :)

beautiful! and, I've been stuck the same way sometimes when surrounded by stamps! Why do we get bogged down by the ones we don't have rather than using our old "faves" a new way. Glad you got inspired by your old friend, the all things of nature stamp set. :)
