Thank you all for the awesome comments and kudos! When the idea for this set first began to develop, I was so excited about it...the shapes just kept

coming. And I was also way nervous as to whether I could pull it off...first time airbrushing, first time making a reference stencil, first time hand painting

small details and letters. It's a shame my camera doesn't pick up the pearl dust person the keys, ring, pendant, crystal orb, and lamp flame all look like they're glowing. All said, I learned a ton and am very pleased with how they turned out!!!

Wow!  Loved these even before I realized they were part of the Practice Bakes Perfect Challenge. Even after I knew the set was for the challenge, I didn't recognize all the cutters until I read what they were - and then of course they became obvious - but only then.  Great on the techniques too.  Never would have guessed so many were a first.  Well done!
