All I can say is, "WOW!"  What a fabulous set of medallions Chaitali illustrated for this new Verve set, Peaceful Medallions!   I stamped several of the images in different ink colors to create a background, of sorts...then stitched on a vellum overlay to soften and yet enhance the look of the panel.  Finally, a coordinating sentiment tag was attached to finish of the card.


Thanks so much for stopping by the stage!

Velum overlay makes it very soft but not totally blocking out the bright colours.
