Today's Ways to Use It challenge is to use something in a language other than English. I was stumped at first and then I remembered this old thank you stamp I have that has Italian, French, and English on it.
I did a wrinkle free distress background with two colours of Distress inks (but they blended together a bit more than I wanted). And then I used my new World of Dreams stamp set for the image and stamped it in black, added the sentiment, cut with a label die, and bordered with black. The background is the debossed version of the branch embossing folder - I wanted the branch to be angled in the same direction as the branch in the image.

Love that technique on watercolor paper Susan and how beautifully you stamped on it too! I have such difficulty getting a clear image on it but yours is perfect! Great idea to have the branches angled the same!

Susan, this is so pretty! That stamp is wonderful.....great to see the birds on the nest. I love how you teamed up the embossing folder to the image, so they are running the same way. The wrinkle free distress panel looks super and the sentiment is a perfect fit here.
