Lets get on with the peeking!

Today is a beautiful decorative elegant image that you will just love called Medallion Motif.
Medallion Motif Graphic
This bold image could easily be the focus of your project or make a great background.  
First, I apologize for the poor lighting.  I had a light bulb burn out and I just couldn’t get a decent shot of this last night in the light box.

I stamped the medallion on Flourishes Classic White card stock, cut it in half, and colored it with Copics.  I stamped the dotted circle and sentiment and cut it out with a Spellbinders Standard Circles large die and popped it up in the center.  All of the paper is from the new MME Rosy paper pad.   I used three buttons from the MME Rosy button collection that matches and strung them on bakers twine before I wrapped it around the cardstock three times.   The crochet lace is May Arts Light Celery Crochet trim.  The colors are a bit richer irl…sorry you can’t see that, but you can see some gorgeous samples from the rest of the team below!

Beautiful! No worries about your lighting dilemma, you amazing work stands on its own!

What a creative use of this stamp. I often try to think of ways to use larger stamps so they don't take over the whole card and this is a perfect solution.
