Vintage Ranunculus

Second post for today...please scroll down for my TSG post.

Well, as you're reading this I hope I'm going to be sleeping in!  I should be back from CHA and I hope to tell all of you all the great things I saw and people I met - another day! :)  But I do have something pretty to show you from the July Release at Flourishes.

Seeing as the Sweet Nature set is SO pretty, I couldn't resist having another card in a warm and vintage style for this set.


I watercolored these Ranunculus stems with reinkers and watercolor pencils and then over-stamped the text on the design washing it out a little with my brush.  I wanted it to have a faded antiqued effect.  Then I added some rich papers, a sponged doily and Fancy Tags Three Shapeabilities behind the design.  Plus some rich ribbon in gingham and pretty lace.


It's such a beautiful set with the text and different styles of the flower blossoms, plus such pretty sentiments.  Today is the last day that you can order the July New Release Bundle at a discount so don't miss out!  

Join the rest of the team showing off more from this release today:

Beautifully vintage! Such a lovely job on this, Christine. Love the gingham/lace combo and your washed out script and every other little detail. I can't wait to hear about CHA. You're all probably pretty tired. Hope you got that Prima booth photo for me!
