Like the bold bright colors. Wild about this stamp set. Wonderful creations. On my bucket list is to go on an African Safari. I used Be Wild & Free for the Simple Salutations Ch#3 Tree and used 2 inks to color it. It's like I'm part of the hop. You gals have such wonderful techniques for your creations.
