Ah...nope, we're not stamping Aruba, but we are stamping a Divi Divi Tree which is found in Aruba!  Are these trees not just the coolest in shape?  You can read a bit about them HERE - I'll admit, I had no clue so I found this information interesting!  And to see a few pictures from where I drew my inspriation, click HERE.

I could attend a brayering class taught by Michelle Zindorf and STILL never be able to brayer as she does - but I gave it my best shot using several different Distress Inks - Antique Linen, Scattered Straw, Tumbled Glass, and Stormy Sky - I literally just used the edge of the ink pad for the Stormy Sky.  I LOVE the soft, muted colors...and Wendy, I.WANT.TO.GO.TO.ARUBA!  :-)

The Divi Divi Tree was stamped in Memento Rich Cocoa and Colored with SU! Markers & Copics.
