Sweet and Sentimental Day Two!

Well, how did you enjoy the Sweet Pea Sneak Peeks yesterday? Didn't the girls do a beautiful job with all their designs? Would you like some more sneak peeks today?

This set today called Ornamental Elements has a very essential design feel to it, parts of it can be used for the main show case on a creation or as background, or as accent....really very versatile and will be available Friday after the release party over at Splitcoaststampers in the Flourishes Forum

I like the swirly feel to one of the stamps, but wanted to used it as a vine for flowers. So I watercolored the flourishes on the watercolor layer, then added pretty felt flowers and a lot of little beads as flower centers or accents. I also kept all of the design elements along a horizontal feel...the beads, the sentiment, the ribbons to keep that sense of motion along a horizontal plane.


I've also used the same stamp as a background stamp to the Basic Gray layer of paper too. It has an elegant and dreamy feeling to me.
