It's a Free For All Friday!

Hi all! It's Friday after Flourishes release, which means it's another...

It's when all the Flourishes designers pick up one of the new release stamp sets and use it to give you all some extra inspiration!

Well, recently, my darling mother had her birthday -- I won't tell you which one -- but as my grandpa always used to do he'd use math to share someone's age. She turned 25 times 3 plus 1. He he! So, I thought a fun and fabulous creation using Flourishes' new Glamour Girls set was in order!

On to my creation!

I stamped the image using Versafine Sepia and stamped it on Spellbinders Labels Fourteen. While the die was still on after cutting and embossing, I did sponge on some Memento Toffee Crunch ink. I also decided to leave the die on and then paper pierce around my image. I used the Sunflower Copic Collection to add a little color to the little lady's hair and feathers. I added RV00 for her cheeks and R27 for her lips. And, you can see I added a little razzle dazzle thanks to a glitter pen! 

Add a die cut border, some sheer ribbon, a pearl, some lace and.... ta da! Done! Here's a close up!

I also added the word "Mwah!" to the corner as well. And, while I wanted to say on the inside "Happy Birthday to one of my favorite antiques"... I didn't! I told her to stay classy and enjoy her day! ;-)

Before I tell you to hop on over to see the other Flourishes designers, I do want to let you know that today is the very last day to take advantage of Flourishes New Release Bundle for May! It's when you can get all of Flourishes newest stamp sets for 10% off when you purchase these sets in a bundle!
