Flourishes in the house!

I finally got some Flourish stamps. Just had to use a few of them for the Limited Supply194 (acrylic stamps only) last Friday. I also added in the Color challenge192 and Ways to use it 192 (watercolor paper). The sketch comes from Beate's blog sketch challenge.

I used Certainly Celery, Not quite Navy and Basic Gray cardstock plus Watercolor cardstock. The flowers were stamped in Basic Gray and then watercolored Not quite Navy and Certainly Celery on for the sky and ground. Pulled out the distressing tool again!

The faux brads are acutally Basic Gray cardstock with cyrstal effects added on top. The cardstock is attached with glue dots.

stamps: Flourished Elements & Summer Botanicals; paper: certainly celery, not quite navy, basic gray, watercolor paper; ink: certainly celery, not quite navy, basic gray; accs: crysatl effects, distressing tool

I haven't forgotten about my blog candy. Should be up by the end of this week. :)
