Be Inspired #9

This is my take on Beate's Inspiration Challenge this week. Isn't the inspiration piece neat? I had fun with this one because I like using a brayer. I tried to use Michelle Zindorf's brayer background technique, but I need a lot of practice on that! LOL It worked for this challenge though! I used my Spritzer tool to add the black specks on top. Everything else is pretty straight forward. Be sure and check out what Beate, Danielle Lounds, Dawn McVey, Silke Ledlow and Susan Roberts came up with for today. Thanks for stopping by! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- Stem Silhouettes (SU); Paper- glossy cardstock, Basic Black (SU); Ink- Pumpkin Pie, Really Rust, Wild Wasabi (SU), StazOn Jet Black; Accessories- paper piercer, small oval punch, 1" circle punch, Spritzer tool (SU), brayer, black organdy ribbon (Darice)
