Shabby flourish

Inspiration can come from just about anywhere.  This time it came from the backdrop of a concert I was watching last night.  The overall colour scheme was antique browns and  the flourishes extended across the  backdrop as the song progressed.  My aim was to produce something with the shabby antique look.  I have also enjoyed viewing Susan’s One Layer Wednesday challenges over at Simplicity although I haven’t had a chance to participate yet.  The outcome was a one layer, shabby card with some masking as well.

To create this card I cut thin strips from the sticky end of a post-it note and laid them on the card before placing more post-it notes on the top and bottom.  I built up the colours by sponging Chocolate chip, Really Rust and Summer sun ink.  For a little texture I used the dotted stamp from Extreme Elemnts.  I also added tiny dots with markers and stamped the flourish several times to complete the card.


Stamps: Baroque Motifs, Extreme Elements, Short and Sweet
Inks: Chocolate Chip, Really Rust, Summer Sun
Cardstock: Flourishes Classic white
