Flourishes Beautiful World Tour - Postcard Theme


Hello dear friends and followers! Hope you are all well.
I can't believe it's September already!  Today is the first Monday of the month and it's time for another Flourishes Beautiful World Tour.
If you're on track you should have arrived here from Dina's blog, but if you get lost along the way you can start your hop back in Florida at the Flourishes Blog. By joining in with our tour you not only get the chance to see some of the beautiful Flourishes stamps used by our design team, if you leave a comment on each designers blog by 30th September, you also get the chance of winning a FREE Flourishes stamp set!!
This month Aleksandre is our hostess and she has asked us to create something with a postcard theme. I decided to go for a vintage postcard. Here is my card...
I started with a cream card base and randomly stamped with Spun Sugar distress ink using one of the stamps from Flourishes 'Lenten Rose' set of stamps.
For my postcard I used some designer paper from my stash and stamped using the same image from the 'Lenten Rose' set. I stamped the roses several times, coloured with markers and then cut them out and layered them. I added dimensional paint to the centres. My sentiment is stamped using one of the stamps from 'Tulips for Friends' set of stamps.
I then coloured and cut out two butterflies stamped from the 'Butterflies and Blossoms' set of stamps and layered them. I added some wire antenna. Finally, I added some pretty lace which I embellished with pearls. I also added a seam binding bow.
Thank you for stopping by.  Your next stop on the tour is at Kathy's blog in beautiful Australia!
