I was lucky enough to win Vanessa's blogcandy recently, a gift certificate to Papertrey Ink. I love their designs, and this pushed me over the edge to place an order. This "Year of Flowers: Violets" set was one of many on my list. After receiving my order, I was even more impressed with this company! The stamps are top-quality clear ones, packaged and presented beautifully! Here is one of my first plays with this lovely set.
I knew I wanted to try stamping on vellum, and when I saw this lovely creation by Jess over at the Hero Arts Flickr community I got my inspiration to put it over the big cling flourish background. Then this card took on a life of its own. The panel there is the top of a sheet of 20 postage stamps that I have been loving since they came out in April or so this year. Then I just added some sheer dotted ribbon on either side.
Supplies: PTI Year of Flowers: Violet, vellum, VersaMark ink and white embossing powder, lavender pearls, HA Hero Hues Iris Layering Paper, HA CG119 Flourish Background, Iris chalk ink, lavender dotted sheer ribbon.
