As I was driving through our neighborhood yesterday I saw a beautiful yellow and orange tree. Fall is such a beautiful time here in Wisconsin! As we got closer, the yellow and orange leaves just popped out at me and I thought “I have to try that with stamps and ink!” Here’s what happened as soon as I got home… To get the leaves multi-colored, I first inked up the entire stamp with Hello Honey ink then I used a sponge dauber to add Tangelo Twist ink.
