Organic Fabric Flourish

Hello !

I finally got a clear stamp set out that my special Aunt (Tante) Saakje gave me when she was visiting last June.     Shame on me for taking so long to use it, as I love the images !     This set is by Inkadinkado - 99533 Organic Fabric Flourish..... interesting name.   There are lots of florals & paisleys designs -  I'll post a photo below so you can see what I'm talking about.   I created a card using some of the stamps.   Once again my photo is not showing the true colours.  I used a fuchsia mat, but it looks red, maybe because I placed pink card stock behind it. 

For this background I blended tattered rose & tumbled glass Distress Inks on white card stock and then used blue & purple glimmer mists.   I used the largest flourish in the set and stamped with Versa Mark ink, embossed with clear.  Over that, I stamped with Silver Brilliance Ink.   Hard to see in the photo.

The flower & little flourishes were stamped & embossed with silver on watercolour paper and painted with Tom bow markers:  555, 673 & 676 and water.    I stamped a 2nd flower and used a portion of it to 3D the image.   All the designs were cut out and arranged as the photo shows.   The sentiment is by Kaisercraft - Life sentiments (a nice set).    Navy ribbon & rhinestones are the final touches !

This is the Fabric Flourish stamp set:  

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day !

This is stunning Shirley I love the colours, and this stamp set is gorgeous. The flower that you've created is really beautiful. I think I'll have to keep my eyes open for these stamps.
