ISC Release -- Day 2 -- Flourish

Background Series: Flourish

Do you enjoy background stamps?  Don’t they add such depth to your card?  What’s unique about the variety of background series by Innovative Stamp Creations is that many come with a few sayings! The background Flourish sheet  being released this week has a both a tag and a label, both of which are ideal for that final touch on your project!

On this card, I used the Flourish background stamp with Perfect Plum ink on Pal Plum cardstock.  I also stamped the tag that comes with this set in Certainly Celery and then cut it out  for my sentiment panel.  The sentiment actually comes from a different ISC stamp sheet.  The rose comes from an ISC stamp sheet called Sketch of Roses. 

On this second card, I combined the scallop  and distressed script from yesterday's Elements set with the Flourish from today's.  I added a flower from an older ISC set, stamping the bloom three times and creating a multilayered flower.  The background is designer paper.
I am sure the work of the rest of the team will dazzle and inspire you.  Here are the links to get you to their blogs.
