Flourishes January Release Preview ~ Day 3



 


WildRosesGraphicWith Valentine’s Day almost upon us we couldn’t miss out on giving you another amazing botanical set for the season, Wild Roses. This stunning set features a wild rose and a theme of "love" - perfect to tell those you cherish just how you feel - all year long!

This set, illustrated by Sam Pickard with sentiments provided by Dina Kowal, measures 4" by 6" and offers three main images, three sentiments and a sentiment background stamp. Today you’ll see some fragrant beauties from our Senior Design Team with this love-themed set.

I decided to make a tag with these flowers because I wanted to try a new technique I found on Pinterest.  The artist's name is Lin, and her blog is called Yours Artfully.  She does wonders with color and textures.

I started off with a 3x5 piece of Flourishes Classic Ivory cardstock.  I then took my Burlap stencil, by Tim Holtz, and layered some Steel Ferro (Viva) over it and let it dry.  After that, I put a coat of Black Acrylic paint over it, let it dry and added some Broken China and Brushed Pewter Distress Paints (Tim Holtz) to the entire tag.  I love the aged look it gave.  The flower images were stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink, and were colored with Copics.  I also added a bit of sparkle to the centers with a Quickie Glue Pen and Warm Highlight Transparent Micro Fine Glitter (Glitter Ritz).  To finish off the tag I added the sentiment, with Black Stazon, and a variety of ribbons and trims.

Here's a closer view so you can see the details and sparkle a bit better.
