Default any ideas for this set?

O.kay - signed up for a new set swap and decided I would get out of my "safe zone" and get a set that would "challenge" my abilities. Uh huh Well, I'm so far into my safe zone I wouldn't know an original idea if it rolled across my idle fingers! Any ideas for Calming Garden. I've noticed the gallery is EMPTY! That right there should tell me something! But if anyone else bought this set because they loved it and if you have lots of ideas you could share PLEASE help me! Otherwise, I'm donating this set to Gloria!!!!

I LOVE that set. It's on my next order.

Ok, here's one idea. Stamp Peony (stamp in upper left corner in catty) on acetate. Emboss in gold. On back, paint PX. Russet for the flower, spring green for the leaves. When I paint PX, I don't use Lumiere, I just use plain ol' Elmers glue, it works great. Dip small brush tip in glue, dip in Pearl Ex, paint on acetate. Let that dry. Layer on black CS, attach with mini brads, then on Brushed Gold. Run some gold cord in X shape on base CS (Ruby red or Mint Green co-ordinate well with Russet & Spring Green). Stamp Chinese Characters running down the side. Mount central image over crossed cord.

Ooh, gotta go put that set on an order.
Happy Stampin',Charisma
