I masked a rectangle off with post it notes before inking in a background with a variety of colours of ink. The leaves were stamped with the Confetti stamp in several colours and the tree from Hopeful Thoughts inked up with markers and stamped off the edge before the mask was removed.
This wonderful flowing sentiment won't be available after the end of this month, along with loads of other gorgeous stamp sets. (Check out the Retirement Lists here.) I scored around the inked rectangle using my Simply Scored board before mounting the panel onto a card base.
Here's a close up of the tree - I love the effect of the leaves swirling about! It's Summer Starfruit, one of the new in-colours, that gives that lovely, jewel-like glow behind the tree. Stampin' Up inks blend beautifully when sponged - Lucky Limeade and Pumpkin Pie also feature in this background.

One of the things I love about being a demonstrator is that when my children need art supplies for homework, it's all here. My daughter swears by my aquapainters and card stock, my trimmer is in constant demand for all three children and my alphabet dies and stamps get a good work out too! My youngest son hasn't quite got the hang of the organisation required for senior school and yesterday morning (before school - aargh!) asked anxiously if I could help him cover one of his exercise books. Did this phase me? Of course not! It's what Well Worn was designed for (possibly!)
