Simplicity - Flourishes

Another challenging task from Susan for the One-Layer Wednesday card. I really struggled with this one and ended up having seven tries (!): the task is to use a flourish on our card
All stamps are from Lavinia. I have not used them beforehand and still have to practise. The stamps are very fairy-tale like and really sweet. I stamped the images with Tim Holtz Distress and Elzybells Hybrid ink. To give the images a bit more depth I highlighted the swirls surrounding the little houses with a golden gel pen. Petra.

This is delightful Petra. I haven't seen those stamps but they are so effective.
p.s. LOVE your cakes too.... how clever you are.

Love the green leaves creeping in around the edges - like you are peering through a hedge to spot the fairy houses!

the gold is a nice accent and emphasizes the "flourishes" :-) Cute stamps!!

Caught my eye straight away. I recognised the images. I am a real fan of Lavinia Stamps. Love the depth that the branches create. I also like the idea of highlighting the swirls with gold pen.
