Tag Tuesday Challenge #47 - Inspire Me

Louise's tag challenge this week is to use a quote or word that inspires you.
I thought this was a lovely verse as I am constantly inspired in my art from nature. The verse is from Stampscapes Scenic Sentiments Sheet #5.
This tag started from a scrap piece of kraft with the dogwood stamp already stamped using a brown pigment ink. I laid down a store bought tag and traced it over the stamped image and cut the tag from the kraft cardstock.
The background was stamped using the light pink dye ink and I forgot that it stamps a lovely color until it dries and then it disappears. :) I traced back over the faint background using my watercolor pencils to bring back the image.
Love coloring in the images on kraft. I think it produces such a softness to the color.
Thanks for stopping by...
