 Today is filled with Flourishes….Festive Flourishes Fridays..Flourishes Bloggers take their turn to shine and today it is all about monochromatic dressed up or dressed down.  It is also day three in our fabulous release week for December.  I am featuring the Lace & Trims set today.  This set has a very special place in my heart.  Marcella and I used old lace and my great, great grandmother’s handkerchief from her wedding day for this set.  Sometime later I will share more on my love of old lace.

For my part of the Festive Flourishes Fridays Bloggers I used the central image in the set.  A large image that is 5 1/2 inches long and fairly wide as well.  It was stamped onto vellum with Versamark then heat embossed with white detail powder.  To give it some extra depth I used my silver Spica-Copic Metallic pen to outline and define areas and then smudge it so as to not leave a line.  Kaiser flat back pearls in Champagne were added to the center of each of the flowers in the lace.  I used my Japanese Paper drill to punch holes down the center of the lace pattern then wove the small ribbon thru it, placing another but smaller pearl.  To add a touch of glimmer I used the tiniest Kaiser rhinestones.  Three slightly off white paper flowers, each studded with a tiny rhinestone a few green leaves, ribbon bow,  streamers with a Love sentiment from the set made my lace panel ready to apply to my card.  The card base is  a 5 /12″ square done with Ice White Metallic from Flourishes.  I embossed a panel of the same paper with my cuttlebug folder, the cut it in half and adhere to the top and bottom of my card base.  Then I attached the vellum lace panel….Viola

Thanks for stopping in for a peak over my shoulder.  I have been very busy in my corner of the Atelier…my little section of “Creative License” has been very busy.
