Valentine Flourish



Happy Wednesday - I think it's Wednesday anyway - LOL. I've taken on more hours at the Ortho Clinic I am part of, and I seem to lose track of time.

Anyway, my card today is one of my most favorite stamps, I have used in a number of ways, and I'll try to get some posted. Once again, very simple, just a little more layering. The background is done with "Pastel Pink" by Plaid/Apple Barrel Colors acrylic paint on an Inka stamp, and I'm sorry - there's no name on it, but it is a flowered flourish, and then stamped. When I don't have the ink color I want, I will use an acrylic paint. I like it because it usually does not stamp flat - but has peaks, giving it more texture. I went over the sentiment with Stardust Gelly Roll pen, and added pearls. Some of the layers are cut with deckle edge scissors - that' all there is to it. This one was done for the shop here in town.

Have to go - have to get to work.

Take Care, and please try to spend some time doing what you love today - Darlene, I'm thinking of you guys and wish you all the best.
