I have stamped it with Stazon Ink, and watercolored the image using Faber Castel Watercolor Pencils. I have cut it into a rectangle, and mounted it onto Always Artichoke. the background was stamped on Brown Sugar, and with Hardwood Background stamp in soft suede ink. I have used the sentiment from the set, punched with word window, and modern label punch, and added some color dots. added twine behind it. It is all mounted onto a piece of Garden Green card stock
