This was the first time I really got to play around with this adorable Branch Out set. I inked up the tree with Close to Cocoa and then used my Chocolate Chip marker to add a bit of depth to the rubber before stamping. You can see the effect in better in the close-up photo below.
You can see I also wiped off the Cocoa on the grass and colored it with Old Olive. Then I played with a couple colors on the leaves - Kiwi Kiss and Old Olive. I masked off areas as I stamped them so it wouldn't be too full. I just wanted a nice spring look. The bird and birdhouse are both inked up with Ruby Red - which matches the Riding Hood Red ribbon perfectly.
I hope you are all having a great week - enjoy the weekend!
