Welcome! So glad you’ve dropped by today. I’m happy to share one of my favorite stamp sets, Very Versailles. Because, I love all the images in this set I’ve decided to create a one sheet wonder. That’s one of my all-time favorite techniques.

Where did I start? My color combo started things off. Deciding to go with a subtle palette reinforced the vintage look. I chose, Soft Suede, So Saffron, Pear Pizzazz and Petal Pink. When creating a one sheet wonder, you can keep all the cards the same or mix it up like I’ve done. My hope is that I’ve given you lots of ideas with the Very Vintage set.
