love a good FLOURISH!!!






and so do the teamies at Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge...........

The Flourish I used is a Sizzix die called Vine with Leaves. I cut flourishes using Paper Stash and Glassine paper. I brushed on Peeled Paint Distress Stain and dabbed on a little Peeled Paint Distress Stickles.

She nestled them behind her removable fabric corsage created using a 
Flower Die, various fabrics,Mustard SeedWild HoneyRusty HingeScattered Straw, and Barn Door Reinker Mixtures and accented with a Vintage Trinket


She colored a piece of seam binding with a mixture of Barn Door and Aged Mahogany for a droooopy accent. The leaves were cut from Crinoline using her Tattered Leaves die which she colored using Peeled Paint


The card base is also from the Paper Stash, punched and inked!! What a wonderful card/gift for a special friend!!


so........I know you love a good FLOURISH too!! Link it up at Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge blog....who knows....you could be chosen a a Top Three Winner or even a.....

If it's colour, a lush flower and a hint of grunginess then it has your name on it! Love the corsage and vibrant colours - it's glowing. Fabulous piece.

Very pretty and I love the way you have combined great strong colour yet still managed to make it look faded and old. Great achievement.

The distress inks you used on the flower are simply gorgeous...nothing like distress in k to make flowers pop. Love the vine with leaves too...paper stash is my favorite paper to use on leaves. Beautiful work!
