ID: MC Sept - Flourishes BD - Some Things card
7"w x 5"h

Created: September 5, 2010

It seems Flourishes Rubber Stamps turned 3 years in August. They're having a birthday bash with prizes, so this is the card I'm entering for it. If you use Flourishes stamps you get entered twice... I used Autumn Flourish set #38 & Fanciful Flourishes set #95. I have to admit, I really like the way it turned out.

I started by stamping one of the leaf flourish corners, brushing on paint from an ArtQuest watercolor Palette "Interference" on dark green cardstock. I really like the way it looked, so I then die cut my center piece using Tim's On The Edge die "Ornate" from white cardstock, die cutting it on both sides. Used the center picot to create the picots on the ends. Stamped my quote (Quietfire Design) with Versafine black and clear embossed. Sponged Distress stamp pads Crushed Olive, Forest Moss & Pine Needles.

Die cut 2 more edges from white cardstock to lay under the colored one, trimming at the ends. 

Now I was able to continue rubber stamping the other 2 leaf flourishes using the center piece to position them. Stamped the sentiment with the black.

Stamped the hearts (Quietfire Design) with Versafine Habernero and clear embossed, then cut them out and positioned them under and adhered them to the center piece. Adhered the center piece to the card.

Added thin gold lines using Peel Offs. As a final touch added various sizes of off white half pearls.
