We will be featuring January's SOTM, which is Beloved Bouquet, a set of 14 stamps.  If you have come here from Nina's Blog, you are on the right path! The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way all around.  If you get lost along the way, you’ll find the complete list of participating consultants on Melinda’s Blog.

For my project I really didn't know what I was going to create, it just sort of came together.  I first started with a sheet of Ruby Cardstock and used Versamark ink to randomly stamp the large bloom all over my the page.  Next I took the Ultrafine White Embossing powder and poured it over where I had stamped.  Next step is to heat set it.  I goofed in a few spots so I cut my cardstock into these 5 1/4" by 2 1/2" pieces and added some patterned paper from La Rose En Vie, some Black Carstock matted onto the scalloped White Daisy Cardstock and layered them all onto my cardbase.  I really wasn't sure which sentiment to choose, so I went with 3 and also heat set them in White Embossing.  My final touch was to add these 2 medium sequins just to dress it up some.

I love how clean and simple this looks, but really it was a long and tedious process. Now if I were too recreate these it would be a breeze, as it is a simple project. It's always great to have a great finished project when you start out stumped.
