Hi Friends! I hope everyone is doing fine & having a scrappy-good week! I have received a couple inquires about the flourishes I altered on my Ruffles & Lace previous post, so I thought I would share with you how they are done! I am all about using my current stash of supplies & this was a great way to put a fresh twist on something old!
I take the covered flourish & file toward the back with quick downward strokes. This wraps the loose & excess paper to the back side. The pink file is great for the curved section. Continue doing this to the edges are smooth & neat.
I then file gently the top portion of the paper in a few spots with the grey distress file to give the ink a resting place!!
I always ink in threes! I use 2 contrasting colors & one darker color. I used Worn Lipstick & Scattered Straw as the contrasting & Frayed Burlap as the darker ink. I apply my ink with makeup wedges & always use the darkest last & cover all raw edges.
I then placed the flourishes about to see where I wanted them to stay!
Lastly, I added the chip flowers & dabbed with the inked makeup wedges, to get rid of a shine on the flowers!
I was very happy with the way they turned out! Plus I was able to use up those supplies just laying around!!
I want to thank everyone for your support!! How lucky I am to have such a great online Scrappy friends!! :)
