On top of all that, I received the Entire Flourishes February Release sets that I won a couple of weeks ago, in the mailbox. I have been anxiously waiting for those sets like crazy! So after I received them, I wondered how many Flourishes stamps I own. So I counted them out and I have: 56!!! I love them all, and I have a hard time choosing which stamps to use every time I go to stamp something out :)
Here are the beautiful stamps I won, aren't they gorgeous?
So of course, I had to try out one of the new Flourishes sets, and I choose to use the "Calla Lilies".
I decided to go very simple and with a small contrast to make the image pop. I love how it turned out, although when I look at it at times, I can't help but think it still needs something, although I don't know what. I used my favorite medium, my trusty Tombow watercolor color markers. Then I added some Sakura glitter jelly roll pen over some spots to highlight it a little bit. Although I don't think you can see it in the picture, it really adds to the image in a way I can't explain.
That was my fun and exciting weekend. And despite my best efforts I only made $20 in scrappy spending money :) ....would anyone like a slice of homemade lasagna with a side of freshly grated cheese and a pressed Christmas cookie for dessert? LOL ;)
