Flourish


Created for the Sunday Postcard Challenge where the theme is Flourishes. The background was created with Distress Inks in Peeled Paint, Faded Jeans & Dusty Concord. This was then stamped with a Flourish in Brilliance Moonlight White. Torn book page was sponged with gesso, then Peeled paint and Faded Jeans ink. Numbers & more Flourishes were stamped in StazOn Azure. Finally the collage image and metal embellishments were attached.
