I was playing with this beautiful Serendipity Thistle stamp for last month's class
and had an extra that I stamped different color dots on trying to decide
which color to go with. I ultimately decided on the pale yellow,
but liked how it looked with all the different colors.
The thistle stamp, which includes the butterfly,
was so easy to ink with markers.
The MISTI is such a great tool for this technique!
I die cut around the bottom and put the design on a piece of
mauve cardstock. It looked like it needed a little something else,
so I scored the bottom of the mauve piece.
Serendipity has a blog hop on the first and third Wednesday of each month.
Mary always has some good sales and if you comment

Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.
