Merci Beaucoup

Happy hump day! Well, the sun is finally starting to peek out after a full day (and night) of hard rain. I'm hoping to get outside for a bit this afternoon.

This week's Etsy Inspired challenge features the shop howbeadyful. I must admit that while I found many adorable items in her shop, nothing was inspiring me. Finally yesterday an idea hit.

I ended up selecting Je t'aime inspiration kit as my starting point (no irony in that name at all, huh?). I used the colors, the flowers, and the French sentiment as my inspiration.

Here's a shocker: I actually colored images with my Copics...AND I'm happy with the results. Yay me!

Hope you like it, too!

Stamps: Botanical Blooms (SU), Thankful Hearts (Verve)
Paper: Aqua Mist, white
Ink: Adirondack Pitch Black
Accessories: Copic markers, Kaisercraft rhinestones, dimensionals

Really how do you do it? I realize this is so simple but give me the same supplies and I always come up with something complicated.

This is stunning!
