I Believe...TT#225


I wanted to ink up my Flourishes Tea Rose set again and decided to play along with this week's challenge of scallops. I love scallops so that was easy :) I also played around with heat embossing white on vellum and coloring...oh my. I love it!! I found to really keep the image looking it's best after you are done it needs to be backed against white. I tried other colors and you loose the transparent, airy feel of the coloring you did on the vellum. My sentiment comes from the Flourishes Orchids set. I have these teeny tiny pearls that I bought online years ago thinking they were much bigger than they were and found out they were meant for nails, but I do pull them out and use them for things like this frame, but they are bit time consuming to glue on one by one ;)  Thanks for stopping by and I do treasure your comments!

Beautiful rose! I love that you stamped it in white and embossed it on vellum. The sweet little butterfly is a perfect touch. Don't you just love this set? It is one of my favorites. :)
