Nikki Foraker :: Warm Winter Wishes

Aloha, Peachies! ;) I live in Florida, and I made this to send home to Chicagoland when the weather turns cold. Funny to me, perhaps not so much to them freezing in the North. HA! Anyhoo, I started by inking up the Cloudy Day Background with Soft Cantaloupe, Fresh Peach, and Pale Tomato Hero Arts Shadow Inks. I give it a really good smush when I stamp it, and the colors blend great! This works best with a Stamp Press. If you don't have one, you need one. Seriously. ♥ it! 
I stamped and paper pieced the palm tree from the June 2013 set. Then I stamped the adorable penguin from the July 2013 set with Charcoal Hero Arts Shadow Ink and paper pieced it too. The greeting is from the Smitten Mittens set. I cut it apart to make it long instead of stacked. :)

I hope you have a Peach-tastical weekend! :)

Nikki
