Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge Blog in creating a card decorated with Flourishes. The challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments this week is to use flourishes in our creation. The flourish I used is a favorite of mine Baroque Motifs from Stampin' Up! I used it in this gift set using the Tissue Stampin technique. With this technique you take 3 small pieces of wadded up tissue paper. You dab it into an ink pad then dab at different parts of the stamp. You do this with each of the 3 contrasing colors of ink that you have chosen until all of the stamp is inked with the various colors. Before stamping, you need to huff or breath on the stamp. The result is a beautiful stamped image that is multi-color. For this gift set I used Pink Pirouette, Pear Pizzazz and Perfect Plum. I hope you'll join me for the Hand Stamped Sentiments Flourishes Forever Challenge. If you need any of the supplies I used in this gift set, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I'd love to be your Stampin' Up! Demonstrator.
