Flourishes in mind. Happy Birthday Jan Marie. Hope you're having a great one.
I used a lace border from the "Lace Edges" set #86 from Flourishes on vellum and used a Pergamano 2 hole piercer to perforate the edges. The large flower is from Hero Arts "Blossom Arts" set also stamped on Vellum and embossed with gold, then used a Pergamano embossing technique starting with a large balled stylus and working down to a smaller stylus to create the white color within each petal and to give it a very 3D effect. The center portion was colored with Bic alcohol markers. It was also pierced around the edges to perforate.
I\m using a Quietfire Design Happy Birthday stamp that I just love and you've seen me use a lot.
