Flourishes


I've really been enjoying this Flourish Thinlits Die Set.

I pulled it out to use on some pieces left over from this card we recently did in class.



Both of these cards used Distress Markers.

For coloring the die cut flower on the first card, I swiped markers on 
a laminated sheet and picked up the ink with a Blender Pen.

The stamp for the class card was inked with the same SU Markers.

The little butterflies were die cut from some Inka Gold smoosh.

Since my die cuts and butterflies were cut from snippets, I can skip over to 
Pixies Snippet Playground
It's such a fun place to play and thank you Di for the wonderful plug for our 
CAS Mix Up challenge.

The Simon Says Monday Challenge is
ADD SOME TEXTURE
I've got texture with the dry embossing and die cuts.
I hope that's textured enough.

I'm apologizing for running behind here Bonnie. Both of your cards are gorgeous! Love the die cuts you used on the first one, the colors are so pretty too. Your second card has such a beautiful scene, love those butterflies die cut out of the smooshed inka gold, just stunning. I bet they shimmer in real life! And I love, love the black eyed susan!
