Dd took a late nap today so I got to play in between folding laundry. I got the Pollen Dust by Fancy Pants Designs set at my LSS with my store credit for doing make and takes. I'm glad that I got the money off. This set is ginormous and gorgeous!!!!! I'm really not a vintagey/collagey type of stamper so this is something a little different from me. The card base is Old Olive and the next layer is a piece of BasicGrey paper from the Perhaps 6X6 pad I have. I stamped some of the flourishy images with Versamagic Tea Leaves on this piece of paper. The focal image is Whisper White and the inks used are Versamagic Tea Leaves, Gingerbread, Eggplant, Brick Red, Purple Hydrangea, Wheat, and Sahara Sand (for sponging the edges) as well as Brilliance Pearlescent Chocolate. I stickled the heart after dabbing it with the point of the Red Brick and the centers of some of the flowers. I mounted this on Vintage Violet and distress the very bottom edge of this piece. I tied olive organdy ribbon and copper cord around this and mounted it to the front on foam squares.
All in all, I'm not 100% thrilled. I like it but it's not quite got that Wow thing going for me. I'll take any and all constructive criticism since I really, really think this is a gorgeous set and want to make it work for me.
