Fairy Flourishes (posted by Judith)

Hi Folks, I have a sample to show you today using the new Fancy Flourishes clear stamp set. I created a background by colouring a piece of white card with Mustard Seed Distress Ink, and then stamped the large flourish stamp across the card with black ink. I used the feisty angel from the Gothic Angels stamp set, masking off the areas that I did not want to appear before I inked the stamp, and then peeled the masking tape away before I stamped the image. I was then just left with the head part of the image. I coloured the image with pencils, and added Glossy Accents to the ivy leaves. I added a sentiment from the Fairyland Words clear stamp set.

I made a flower using handmade paper which was sprayed with yellow ink, and cut from Nestability dies. I edged the shapes with black ink for definition. I scrunched each layer, and attached them together with a brad. I glued a cog into the centre, and dropped seed beads into the glue. Finally, I die cut some ivy leaves from green card.

The background reminds me of expensive wallpaper, it would look lovely in a living room or bedroom, wouldn't it? Keep popping back for more samples from my Team mates. Thanks for stopping by, Judith xx


  1. Your use of the Mustard Seed with balck & the dark green is very striking indeed & I love the way that you've edged the flower components. It's lovely a dramatic & you certainly created a little magic with this one.

  2. I love the colours - really striking, and the softly coloured Angel and the lovely flower finishes the card off beautifully.
