As I continue to highlight my favorite sets from the retiring stamp list, I realized that I had never used the grapes from the Nature's Pace stamp set! In all honesty, I purchased the set for the bee stamp. And I knew that I could use the thistle stamp for scrapbooking my Edinburg Scotland trip, but the lovely grapes have just sat there unnoticed ... until now!
Stamps like this one scream to be colored with the Stampin' Write markers! I don't think the image would be near as successful if stamped in a single color - and you try lining your green and purple ink pads up just where you want them (although it can be done if you are careful and use the corner of the pad). Also, the marker technique allows you to add a little shading, as I've done in the leaves using two separate green markers.
Just remember to huff on your stamp after coloring and before stamping. The hot moist air will revive any ink that has started to dry on your stamps.
