Spring ~ New Memento inks!!!

I am so excited to have the new Memento inks from Tsukineko in the house!!!!!  I drove to my LSS (Betty's Stamping and Scrapbooking Room, a mere 45 miles from my house)  yesterday just to get my hands on these beautiful ink pads and bring them to their new home...sigh.  LOVE these new colors and just a little shout out for her store...she does have an online store as well :P.  Obviously, while I was at the store I also picked up some other items including some Penny Black stamps which jumped into my basket.  Two of my favorite illustrators are now illustrating for them: Laura Campbell and Nina Brackett!!  I was blessed to be on Laura's DT Layers of Color with them and thrilled to see this new door that has opened for them.  Here is what I made:
The background was stamped with Posies Slapstick Cling using Bamboo Leaves. I stamped Scented Message with Expresso Truffle and watercolored the image with some other new Memento ink colors on my craft mat.  Then I gently sponged (with Ink Blushers) Toffee Crunch and spritzed the with Matte Goosebumps.  The flowers were stamped a second time and popped up on small Zots.

Supplies:
Stamps: Penny Black Scented Message (wood mount) and Slapstick Cling Posies
Cardstock: Chocolate Brown, Green Apple and Ivory
Ink: Olive Grove, Elderberry, Espresson Truffle, Toffee Crunch and Bamboo Leaves
Dies: Floral Oval, Large Classic Ovals
Punch: Small Oval (SU) 
Bling: Want2Scrap

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful day! 
Blessings,
