sunday stamps - thinking of you

good morning is time for another sunday stamps challenge and we are sharing a fabulous, bold & bright color combo! I have used tim holtz distressed inks and randomly swooshed them around with a piece of acetate and left pools of color for a bolder look. You can see my tutorial on ink swooshing here. I have used the stunning new turning leaves released from the stamp market. The leaves are so pretty, I wanted to leave them white and only added a bit of glitter/stickles. The sentiment is from the set called best ever greetings. I cannot wait to see what you create with this weeks fun colors. Check out the rest of the teams cards for even more inspiration!

words with meaning - your health is an investment, not an expense.
