Love and Lace

 

Welcome to the New Release Sneak Peeks at Flourishes!  We have a pair of stunning sets to show you today that are made for each other, and carry with them the tenderness of a mother and child relationship with the elegance of intricate lace.


I decided to go vintage-shabby chic with this card using both of these new sets, some embossing, ink and some new tools from the Flourishes Store.  I embossed the beautiful lace background onto some Glitz Happy Travels paper with white embossing powder.  Then I took some Ranger Tea Dye Ink and the new Ink Blending Tool from the store and inked and distressed the papers to add depth to the contrast between the paper and embossing.  It's such a fun tool to use too, and it adds the ink so evenly.  The beautiful mother and child image is also embossed, framing it with the elegant circle frame, and then I've added shabby-chic details.  


Prima Fall Crystals, Velvet Ribbon, Lace, uneven stitching, a resin rose and the sentiment on our new Tailor Made Classic Die, as well as some Spellbinders accents and heart Edgeabilities finishing.  

You will see some fantastic creations with these lovely sets today at the rest of the Senior Design Team....
