Simply Camellias



Well gang, didn’t we have a beauty to show off to you yesterday?  Today’s new polymer set will just continue to exceed all you expectations.  We’re bringing you Simply Camellias!  It puts into stamp form one element of the digi Camellias Marcella released earlier, and then adds so much more to it!  One of the things I REALLY love about this set, besides the beautiful flowers is the amazing font combination that Marcy put on this one, and I think you’ll agree when you see it.  



I adore this sweet little camellia bloom in the little glass bowl.  I think it captures elegance and simplicity so wonderfully.  I had fun bringing life to the glass bowl with the hint of colour coming from the petals in water.  I paired the pretty bloom with some gorgeous papers with gold tones (My Mind’s Eye On Trend), and also stamped the larger camellia blooms in gold on the ombre sheet of paper in the background.  



Simply accented with a gold sparkly ribbon and it’s complete.  Just simply beautiful!  



For some reason I didn’t add my BG0000 and BG11 to this photo, but I did use them to colour the water.  

The gang’s all here to show off this gorgeous new set!

Breathtaking Christine! I love the touches of gold and of course, that beautiful image. BTW, Camellias are the Alabama state flower.
