Sweet Peas

Good morning everyone! I couldn't wait to finish my other projects so I could start playing with the new Papertrey Ink stamps I received a few days ago. Especially the Sweet Pea set. How pretty are these?! I decided to water color them with Adirondack Inks because Mountain Rose just reminds me of the color of Sweet Peas I once had.
The argyle background paper was stamped as well, in pink, melon and moss colors. I think it's so awesome to be able to create my own DP, especially when I just don't have the 'right' color in my stash. I usually color my stamped images after I choose a DP, but this time I had to use the Mountain Rose ink, and didn't find anything to coordinate nicely with it. So the custom argyle print was born!

Hope it inspires! Thanks for looking!
