A Blue Fancy Flower

Happy Weekend and Welcome to the new followers, I appreciate everyone's visits.

I have a quick post today with a design featuring a flower from Chocolate Baroque's beautiful new Fancy Flowers set.


I applied Shabby Shutters and Peel Paint Distress Inks to the background using the Acrylic Block Technique.     Next I stamped the Floral Damask Background stamp with Shabby Shutters.   When dry I stamped with a fragment from Textured Fragments and embossed with a blue glitter embossing powder.  I stamped the flower image from Fancy Flowers with black Stazon Ink and coloured with my Prisma pencils.   I used spellbinder dies for the shapes.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day,
Shirley

I am so loving this flower stamp you've used. The brilliant teal colors were so rich & lux with such depth. Great pencil coloring here. Thanks for detailing how you did the background. That's gorgeous EP too. TFS & thanks for the lovely comments for our anniversary. Very much appreciated. Hugs

This is rather splendid & very luscious with all the sultry green. The background is full of interest & I love how the glittery embossing echoes the shimmeriness of the ribbon.
