Moroccan Nights - Stampin' Up! Artisan Blog Hop

Welcome to another Artisan Blog Hop. This week we're featuring the Moroccan Suite and/or Thoughtful Banners stamp set and Duet Banner punch. This was an unexpected pairing for me but well, you know me, I love orange, so I started there! 

Get the medallion stamp all inky with Peekaboo Peach and spritz with water before stamping on watercolour paper. Easy vibrant colour! Also, I used scraps of doily I pulled off another project as a base for the sentiment. Waste not, want not!
