WT117 Fabulous Flourishes

Flourishes are all the rage right now, you see them everywhere from stamps to fabrics to clothing. Everyone is jumping on the flourish bandwagon and I was no exception, but I'll admit, they aren't my favorite thing to work with. I always seem to have trouble placing them just right, or using the right colors or something never seems right. So when I saw today's Ways to Use It challenge, my first thought was "Oh no, I can't do this :( "

Well I was getting K ready to go to the video store and I grabbed a new shirt I had bought her last Fall when my Mom was here. (I had meant to give it to her for her birthday, but I forgot *oops*) Anyway, I kept looking at the shirt going, hmm that's interesting. Why am I caring about this shirt now? Then it hit me! It has flourishes on it! And it's in SU colors! OMG I CAN do this! LOL

SO here's K in the forgotten shirt and the card that it inspired :) I'm actually happy with the way this turned out!

Here's the run-down on the supplies used, there are a bunch :)

CS: Only Orange, Apricot Appeal, Pixie Pink, Whisper White - Ink: Apricot Appeal, Pixie Pink, Whisper White, Pink Passion - Stamps: Rhonna Farrer flourishes v1, Simply Said, Delight in Life, Stampendous Calendar Chick clear stamp set (tiny flower), A*Muse sentiment - Accessories: Silk flowers (from stash), MM rhinestone brad, flower punch, Sakura Glitter pen
