Swirls and Flourishes.

I had fun playing with my rubber stamps on this card, though. The middle section (rectangle) was masked and brayered over a Versamarked flower stamp from Scrappy Cat with a Marvy La Plume matchables inkpad, 'Shades of Rose'. I used glossy card for this. I then removed the mask and overstamped the flowers with the same ink making sure I placed the new flower slightly away from the Versamarked flower to create a shadow effect. I stamped the corners with a HOTP swirl stamp in the same ink and then shadowed the edges with cut and dry foam. I overstamped over these with another swirl stamp and embossed it in gold. I mounted it on gold mirror card, stamped a greeting, added some Brenda Pinnick backing paper and Martha Stewart punched butterflies. I had fun making this one and didn't want to send it but I had to!! Do you find parting with your cards hard? It's worse when you remember you forgot to photograph it!! lol
