Silhouette Style in 1,2,3!

Wow... Flourishes just put the wraps on another release and man, oh man, what a whirlwind! Today, the FLLC gals wanted to switch gears and show you more of what you could do with one of our newest 1,2,3 Create Kits!

I don't know if you've really let this kit simmer in your creative mind, but I have to tell you firsthand that it is sophisticated and perfect for those elegant occassions. It's feminine. It's soft. And, it has some really unique pieces in a way that is 100% color coordinated. What is better than that?

On to my creation! This is literally a 10-minute creation that you could have on hand for engagements, weddings or even anniversaries!
So, here are the details! I stamped the dancing couple from Flourishes new Wedded Bliss set in black pigment ink (to ensure that it was a rich black, I used Versafine Black Onyx). Stamp the corner flourishes from the set, embellish them with pearls, add some sponging thanks to some Spun Sugar Distress Ink. The rest is simply matting. I did mat the happy couple on some black that I edged with a goldleaf pen. Mix and match some decorative paper from the 5th Avenue kit and add this lush ribbon (also from the kit) tied with some gold cording and that fabulous heart locket (also in the kit!) Ten minutes later... a card ready to send before wedding season hits!

Today, some of the Flourishes gals are showing off ways to use this kit!

This is lovely and what a surprise it was so simple, but the simple ones turn out best sometimes, don't you think?

So pretty Julie! I like the papers (too bad there wasn't one with a little girl in it) bawhahahah... Oh my that was funny! :0) this is so pretty just as it is! Great idea with the stamp on the corners, I need to try that.
