Quick and easy Inspired by Nature

Here's a quick and easy one for you today using Inspired by Nature. I started with Bashful Blue cardstock (3 X 3 1/4). Bashful Blue is a light enough color that you can stamp on it and the colors still stay true, so I thought it would be great for the sky. (If you wanted a sunset-ish background, you could use So Saffron.) I got my color combo from the new Color Coach: Bashful Blue, Rose Red, Old Olive. I stamped the flowers in Rose Red and the grass in Old Olive. Gold Glow Smooch Spritz is the final touch. I adhered the Bashful Blue piece to a Rose Red mat, added the Old Olive satin ribbon and tore the right edge of the mat. (I'll be showing you how to make this bow on Wednesday; it's awesome!) At first, I used an Old Olive cardbase, but that was WAY too much Old Olive. So I changed it to Bashful Blue, and I liked that much better. Old Olive grass makes a great background that mirrors what's going on in the main image.
Happy stamping!
