I just love all the different words in this stamp set and I wanted to use them as a main part of my layout. I did a couple different things on this layout that I haven’t done before and are very different for me. 1 – I used two different size parenthesis and 2 – I colored one of the wooden shapes and left the others natural. Both of these fit the layout well! To create the pattern on the banner, I used Shortbread Ink with a stencil on Shortbread paper for a tone-on-tone look that I LOVE!
