Floral Flourish


Hi, I had a break from my craft room recently due to quite a few other things that were happening, some good, and some otherwise! Hopefully things will settle for a little while now.

This card started out as 2 pieces of flourish left from another project and 1 flower. It was for a sketch challenge, but it kept growing LOL!
The die is a fairly new purchase, MFT leaf filled flourish. I can cut 5 from a piece of card and then use up the scraps for bits of leafy flourish. My snippets habit is getting a bit compulsive!

The flowers were stamped, fussy cut and coloured with inktense pencils in carmine pink and shiraz. Great name for a colour! I shaped them a bit using a stylus on a  mouse pad and popped them up with foam dots.

I'm visiting the snippets playground at Pixie's Crafty Workshop. I thought I was in time for last week's fun but the gates had shut, so I'm an early bird this week!

The theme at Addicted to Stamps & More is CAS.

Materials used:
 Stampin Up flower shop stamp; MFT leaf filled flourish die; distress inks; inktense pencils; black opal stickles in the flower centres; sentiment sticker.

Thanks for visiting :)

  1. Lovely card...great way to use up those little bits. Sometimes I find a whole leafy spray is too big and often cut them down! This is a great snippets card.
