Today was cold, miserable and wintery. The jobs were done, the Design Team cards were done, classes were over... what to do? Break out a new stamp set from the box! Queen Anne's Lace is a pretty little floral set with a number of greetings. What better way to try it out than to use the current colour challenge at The Paper Players?
I usually like a stronger colour palette but these soft colours suited the delicate flowers of the Queen Anne's Lace. Maybe, somewhere in the world, you can find a soft yellow version. 😀
I used the new Tasteful Textiles embossing folder to add some texture and also some folds of the gorgeous white linen ribbon. The pearls were coloured with the dark Seaside Spray Stampin' Blend.
I hadn't used the Stitched So Sweetly dies very much before but I found today that they layer up very well to give some more oomph to the sentiment. I think I'll be using them more!
Update: Delighted to be a Cut Above at The Paper Players.
