TCM: Fancy Flourishes

Wednesday, June 19, 2013

So happy to be back sharing yet another new, June, stamp set from The Craft's Meow.  This one is called Fancy Flourishes, and it's name says it all.  Check it out!
I started this card by black embossing the large flourishes onto a piece of multi-colored, chevron patterned paper.
I then stamped a strip of White cardstock, in Jet Black ink, with the "Thanks" sentiment and dotted leaves.  A little, Lucky Limeade ink shadows and softens the leafy lines, and the sentiment itself was colored in with colored pencils and mineral spirits before being doused with a dash of glitter.  It was then grounded with a strip of dotted, turquoise, patterned paper, as well as a punched strip of orange, circles, patterned paper, before being adhered just above horizontal center of the embossed piece.
Lots of coral-threaded, straight, machine stitches, including a few extras, in the bottom corners, to ground the design, secure the piece to the Kraft, cardstock, card face.  And, finally, a Basic Gray, taffeta ribbon was wrapped, around the card face, between the two, patterned, paper strips; tied, in a bow, near the left edge of the card face; and embellished with an aqua button, laced with a hemp twine bow.
Thanks so much for stopping by!   Don't forget to leave some love, on the TCM Store Blog, by 8 pm PST tonight, for your chance to win today's stamp set.  Then, I hope you'll join us all for tomorrow's New Release Blog Hop.  Until then, happy stamping, friends!
