This photo of this set in the new Stampin Up catalog, doesn't do it much justice. Its really a sweet and lovely set. I won this set at the Stampin Up On Stage Convention and wasn't sure about it (because of the photo in the catalog) but once I inked it up, it really came to life!
I don't normally use this color combination. I'm not really a fan of green/orange together, but I stepped out of my box and just went with it!
I used granny apple green (which I LOVE) poppy parade, grapefruit grove, pineapple punch and mossy meadow inks. I know, so crazy.... Oh and balmy blue for the water.
The designer paper is from the new In Color paper pack and I also used whisper white, mossy meadow and granny apple green cardstocks. Can you see the grapefruit grove faceted dot on the dragonfly?
The sentiment is from the new Itty Bitty Greetings set. This set took the place of the retired Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set. I love all the great sentiments in this set.
I tucked a small piece of the grapefruit grove ribbon under the main image to pull some of the orange from the dragonfly.
The card looks even prettier when multiplied! I think its pretty pleasing to the eye, afterall. Maybe oranges and greens really do go together better than I thought!
Oh, one more thing about this lovely stamp set that is pretty cool. Its a "reflection" stamp set. What that means is that if you flip the photopolymer stamp face down on your acrylic block, it then becomes a reflection of the main image on the stamp.
Here's an example:
How cool does that reflection look in the water? I simply flipped the stamp over on the block and stamped it upside down under the main image.
The underneath of the stamp is flat with no detailed lines, so it gives a solid "reflection" of the image.
Here's another "reflection" card...
Now we know why its called "Peaceful Reflection!"
Thanks for stopping by today.
Until the next time...
Keep On Stampin and Come back again soon!
