With a Flourish or two…

Happy Sunday everyone.

Sharing a couple of cards.

This first card I made using Flourishes Kids at Play and Annabelle Stamps Sentimental Bluebells “Happy Birthday” Sentiment.


I started this card with a black card front. I cut the patterned paper from Cosmo Cricket Social Club just short of the amount I needed so I could trim and have my two black lines showing through. I then stamped my image using Versa fine Onyx Black on SBB kraft cardstock. I then used my distressing tool to sponge various inks onto my background. The sentiment was stamped onto a die cut scallop which I taped to the side of my image. Before I attached my image to the card front with foam tabs I felt it needed a little brightening up so I added some red cardstock from my scraps stash. I am linnking this upto the following challenges.



(I turned this sketch to the side)

My second card uses Flourishes Kids at Play and the sentiment is from Call me also by Flourishes stamped in SU Crumb Cake ink. I have CAS(E) this card from http://flourishes.org/2013/06/focus-on-the-beach-and-more-about-silke/

This is the original


and mine


For my card I have used SBB Kraft Cardstock, October Afternoon Farmhouse 8 x 8 pad along with Kaisercraft lace, Sizzix SU stripe embossing folder, Annabelle Stamps Natural Hemp Dienamics Rolled rose and CC Designs Leafy Branch dies. The button, ribbon, pearls and yellow cardstock are from my stash.

I am linking this card up to Flourishes Case Silke
