Such a beautiful elegant stamp set I have to say I really did enjoy playing with this super collection of goodies.

8 x 8 Card Blank - Victorian Velvet , Spun Sugar & Peacock Distress Inks 
 White & Green Card Stock 
 Pink Ribbon & gems (from my Crafty Stash)
How To:
Firstly take the white & green card stock and trim to three different sizes to form the mat & layers, then take the flowers from the stamp set and stamp randomly in spun sugar & victorian velvet distress inks onto the larger of your white card stock. Onto the middle layer place the heart swirl stencil onto the 2nd size plain card stock and place some low tac masking tape to secure it temporarily whilst applying victorian velvet distress ink over the stencil and then gently remove the tape & stencil to reveal the lovely pattern on your card stock underneath. The final mat has the peacock on. To get the two tone image carefully add victorian velvet distress ink just on the body of the stamp and then peacock feathers distress ink to the tail feathers, before making your layers up distress the edges of your white card layers with spun sugar & victorian velvet distress ink.and then finally layer together an add ribbon and gems.
Oh so easy I hope you like it.
