Blue & Green Fancy Flourish

Hello everyone, I hope you had a great weekend.

Chocolate Baroque has introduced another beautiful Clear Stamp set, Fancy Flourishes that includes nine elegant images.   I've used one of the large designs for the card below:



I stamped the beautiful large Flourish with brown Dye ink on green designer paper that has a slight pattern.   I coloured the image with Prisma Pencils and added lots of bling.      I die cut the paper and layered onto white card stock that I embossed and edged with a gold leaf pen.  I used the same designer paper as one of the mats.

Spellbinder:   S5-160 Opulent Ovals
Embossing Folder:  Cuttlebug Acanthus

Here is a look at the Fancy Flourishes Clear Stamp A5 (half sheet) set that is currently offered at a introductory price.


Glenda (owner of Chocolate Baroque) is giving away a Fancy Flourishes set.  All you need to do for a chance to win is leave a comment at her blog post here.  Good Luck !


Thanks for stopping by and have a great day,
Shirley

Really gorgeous card Shirley, the colouring on top of the stamping is a wonderful touch, as are the gems. The framing with the die cut and embossing, edged with the gold makes this all feel like a touch of luxury. Elaine x

This is stunning Shirley, such gorgeous colours and the centre piece could almost be a broach or pendant. Hope you had a great weekend.

An absolutely striking creation with your pencil colouring on the patterned paper - your gems are so strategically placed as to enhance & not to overpower. Neither do your multiple mats overkill - in fact they draw the eye in. Maybe it's because I love green but this one ticks all my boxes - including the symmetry one!!
