Flourished Twirls

Flourished twirls Heather Telford

I think navy and white can be very elegant. I was aiming for simple but elegant when I created this card. The flourish pattern from the Penny Black “Twirls” set is stamped in Chipped Sapphire distress stain (I stamped off on scrap paper first so the imprint wasn’t too wet). To finish I flicked a little stain over the pattern after stamping, added a navy strip of card stock and the die cut sentiment. This design might work as a wedding card especially if you knew the colour scheme to follow.

Using navy and white reminds me of a polka dot dress when I was nine; I loved it. I wouldn’t mind having a navy and white polka dot dress again. Perhaps something like this one I pinned recently:

    Ooh, like an elegant china pattern. Very nice!

  7. I’m glad to see that you chose distress stain because I don’t see it used very often in the blogs I read & I need some inspiration to use mine!

  8. It’s a simply gorgeous card! And I also am glad, as “scraphousemom”, you used Distress Stains. I need to be figure out the best use for them. Beautifiul.
