Make it Monday fun!

Hi there dear friends!  I'm back home from a wonderful mini vacation with my kids in Seattle.   We had the best time with them and it was so hard to leave, but we will see them again in a couple of weeks and I can't wait!!  In the meantime, I decided it would be fun to play along with PTI's Make it Monday Challenge!!
Here's the Challenge:

Make It Monday #22: Multi-Color Stamping with Ink Refills

and here's my take on the Challenge:

I didn't have any craft foam, so I put a few drops of Tim Holtz Wild Honey and Worn Lipstick Distress Ink onto a small piece of felt and used that as my stamp pad.  Such a fun technique!  I also punched the butterfly out of the left overs that I had.

Supplies used:
Stamps:  PTI Happy Trails, Turning a New Leaf, and Daydreamer
Ink:  PTI Simply Chartreuse; Tim Holtz Worn Lipstick and Wild Honey Distress Ink Refills, Tim Holtz Tea Dye Ink Pad; Memento Rich Cocoa
Cardstock:  PTI Rustic Cream; Bazzill Pink
Lace:  Prima
Floral: Recollections
Hand Dyed Seam Binding: Memriemare

Thanks for stopping by!!  I hope you have a wonderful evening!
