Neglected Elements of Style

I still think that Elements of Style is a beautiful stamp set.  The details are so pretty.  But continuing with my theme this week of using neglected stamp sets on my shelf, I had to include this stamp set.  I’ve seen so many pretty cards made with this set and they are colored so beautifully, and I tend to shy away from that because it takes more time than I have to color and I don’t really feel that I’m very good at that.  But really, this stamp doesn’t have to be colored.  It’s pretty just as it is.

I cased this layout from one used by Betsy Veldman in a Paper Crafts magazine.  I sprayed the floral panel with some Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz so it has a pretty sparkle in real life.  I used a sponge dauber and Pretty in Pink ink to dye the doily snippet, and I dyed the flower trim with Calypso Coral ink.  The paper scraps in the bottom corner all came from the Tea for Two dsp.

Enjoy your Tuesday!  Thanks for stopping by!
