Sweet Pea stamps - Design Team call

  Sweet Pea Stamps is having a Design Team call so I decided to take the plunge!!! I love Sweet Pea stamps - especially the mermaids and fairies :) Check out their blog here - and their web site here -

  The gals at Sweet Pea Stamps asked us to show them something that best shows our particular style - and that is the hard part as I really don't have a specific style except maybe just anything colored and the fact that I like to try new things and todays pretty is a bit of both :)

  The stamp I used today is Elaine Cox's 'Kiara' and colored her with koh-i-noor  pencils.
  I love doing decorative pieces when I can and this one is a hanging that is about 12.5 inches wide and 9 inches tall - not including the ribbon to hang it up with.
   I started with my colored image and a piece I did in my last encaustic wax class last fall :) (encaustic wax painting in this case uses wax melted and painted with a hot iron) and I embedded some pieces of old lace into the wax and added a couple seashells and a heart charm.
  Next I layered all the pieces to some black handmade paper and added some pearls, flowers, beads, and some metal corners(the base is a 1/4 inch thick wood plaque).
  All for today - Take Care
