Jami Sneak Peek Swap - Sweet Stems

If you like the set Pocket Silhouettes and you like water coloring just a little, you'll love this new stamp set Sweet Silhouettes. As soon as I saw it I was put in on my New Catalog Pre-order. There are a couple of reasons it appealed to me. #1, it was inexpensive! At just $16.95 for 4 stamps it won't break the bank and #2, you know I like to watercolor so the open flowers afford me just enough space to give the images some color, yet the area is so small that it won't take long at all to color in!
This card uses Kraft, Pink Pirouette and Baja Breeze card stock. I love the softness of these colors together. They would make perfect Easter colors don't you think? I will admit that the cute little thingy's (is that a word?) in the scallops took me some time to line up. The "thingy's" are from Stampin' Up!'s All Scallops set and were heat embossed with clear embossing powder. I punched the scallop first and then put the thingy's in. Some faux stitching and a hint of dazzling diamonds in the center of the flower finished out this cutie!
