It's my day to post for Scraptownlady, and another lovely Flourishes set called to me. I thought I would show you how much fun it is to use a stamp set in different ways. Here are my cards:
|The first card was created by simply coloring the image, mounting it on a piece of pretty designer paper, and adhering it to the card base.|
|For this card, the image was stamped with a colored distress ink. Next, the sentiment was stamped in a darker distress ink, directly over the image. The panel was mounted on pretty paper, then adhered to card base.|
|Last, but not least, I masked off the upper portion of this card. The beautiful image was stamped repeatedly in black ink, until the lower portion was covered nicely. A pretty black ribbon, and a few pearls were the perfect finishing touches!|
Designer's Tip: Don't be afraid to think outside the box! Just because it's a flower image, doesn't mean it has to be colored and 'over'embellished!

Thanks for stopping by today! It is an exciting weekend for us. We are soon to be first-time grandparents, and our daughter is flying in from Germany tomorrow, for her one and only baby shower! Her in-laws are flying in from Phx., and our son and his fiance from Calif., so it should be a wonderful weekend filled with friends and family! I've been MIA lately, as I've been busy creating, cooking, cleaning...you know the routine! Will have lots of photos next week!
