There's some beautiful countryside around Charlottesville, full of vineyards....if you've not made the trip, it's a great one to plan! Lots of wineries! :-) It is a beautiful and fun way to spend a day or a weekend!

This stamp set, called 'Tuscan Vineyard' reminds me of the area. It's a wonderful set! You'll enjoy the many options it offers.

I've made the following card using a single color for the stamped image and then again with multiple colors using Stamp'in Write markers. As you can see, it creates two very different looks.....and one way is much less labor intensive than the other!  :-)

Hope you get to the wineries soon! :-) In the meantime.....stamp to your hearts content!

Beary Love!

I've stamped this bear in many different colors trying to find a different color combination I like....and so decided to try it in white.

I started with Crumb Cake as my base and used Whisper White first, then used grays as the next two layers.  It's not my favorite, but it's certainly different, so decided to build a card around it, going for a brighter color to pop it a little.

Hope this inspires you to play with your ink colors and find your favorite combinations!
