I have a number of Sweet Pea Stamps on my wish list. I decided that since I had 2 custom scrapbook orders, I could treat myself to a little present. I purchased Aloha and Growing Love. I am currently working on 3 versions of Growing Love, but I wanted to share the 1st completed one with you. This is truly the most beautiful pregnancy stamp I have ever seen. I have to be honest, I don’t usually like pregnancy images because I find them to be a bit cheesy. This one is pure elegance. She has that dreamy, blissful look on her pretty face, and her swelling belly gives me thoughts of my own pregnancies, which were pure joy. She is only available as a single image. I made this card using a Sweet Pea sketch for a challenge they are currently running…I didn’t make the top 10 like i had hoped, but that’s ok because I love the way this card turned out. I used my watercolor markers and pencils for her, and I cropped the image into an oval, which I think really works for this image. I used a blue Sakura Stardust pen to highlight a few things, you can see the sheen in this photo. You can click on any of the pictures to see them bigger. The sentiment is also from Sweet Pea, and I think it is perfect for this image. Today, there are several of my Sweet Pea creations featured on their blog! Click HERE to take a peek. I told you it was going to be a very Sweet Pea Stamps week! I’m really looking forward to showing you my next version of Growing Love. I just need to add a few embellishments and then it will be done. Tomorrow, I will have a new StampInsanity challenge to share with you, so I hope you will join me for that. Have an inspiring day!
I think this is absolutely BEAUTIFUL!!! I love it Alison!

I've started to crop images too and it gives the stamp a total different look. Of course the only reason I've started doing it is because most of the time there is a major mistake and the only way to fix it is to cut it out, lol.
This is gorgeous. Love all the embellishment (I have such a hard time adding stuff – ocd )
Alison, your Sweet Pea creations are gorgeous. I love each one of them. Your really know how to play with colours.
