Be Inspired...25

It's Wednesday, and time for my submission for Beate's Inspiration Challenge. I was severely stumped when I saw the inspiration for the week! I had no idea what to do! I am not too keen of abstract art, so this canvas was truly a challenge. However, it did include some natural elements that I really like, such as colors, trees, and flowers. So, yesterday, I jotted down some ideas of stamps to use and went from there. Later, I stamped the tree image but once that part was complete was not inspired to complete the abstract look. So, I made it go "my" way! I felt that this canvas was kind of solemn, so I made my card feel "comfort." Here is what I came up with!
