A favorite stamp

This stamp has to be my all time favorite from Flourishes.   I’ve used it for so many holiday cards not only because it is beautiful, but it is so easy to use.  It is so easy to make an elegant card – that is the true  beauty of a well drawn image.  My secret wish is that Flourishes would come out with a similar image that says Merry Christmas.

Materials used: Stamps: Flourishes Rejoice, Rubbernecker Victorian leaf, SeeD's harlequin; Paper: Flourishes Clasic White, SU Pomegranate and Olive, gold cardstock; Ink: Versamark, Marvy aubergine marker, copics; Other: gold embossing powder, rhinestones

I’ve paired the stamp with my favorite SU paper – pomegranate.  Oh how I wish SU would make this a permanent color!  When this was offered I failed to get the ink and I have regretted that decision ever since. 

The image was stamped on Flourishes Classic White Cardstock in versamark and embossed in gold.  I used the copic collections of Tea Rose and Evergreen for color.  The vine-y background on the pomegranate paper is stamped in magenta and is from Rubbernecker.  The Harlequin background was stamped in versamark and is f rom SeeD’s. I don’t know if you can tell but the diamonds of the harlequin pattern are outlined with a stardust gel pen.  Everything was matted on gold cardstock.  The rhinestones were a lighter pink so I just colored over them with the darkest copic marker from the Tea Rose collection to bring the color more in line with the ink and cardstock.

The great thing about this sketch is that all the panels were made using scraps!  I love when I can do that!

Thanks for stopping by!
