Today, I am doing what I wanted to do yesterday!  First, I stamped my line stamp outlines in a row.  Then I flipped my stamp over and used the back side of the image to add color to each "stamp".  (Yesterday, I wanted to add color to my raindrop with my stamp but it didn't work because the shape of the raindrop was not symmetrical).  I inked up my sentiment and stamped it over my line of "stamps".  Finally, I added my pearls.
 
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!  Don't forget to see what Sue did for the release of this set!
