You Inspire Me ~ Flourish

With a "flourish of creativity" I created this 8x8 layout of my parent's holding hands. The picture explains the title of my layout, my Parent's love and devotion for each other is truly inspiring and a blessing!

I embossed the butterfly flourish to frame my image using versamark and white embossing powder. Next I layered the designer paper onto the base and began "building" my layers that I prepared in advance. I embossed another cardstock using the same flourish and inked the edges with a coordinating ink and stamped the word You. Taking my black and white photo I "direct to papered" using Ranger's vintage photo distressed ink. Stamping directly on the photo with versamark, I carefully embossed the flourish again to match the design beneath it. I embellished it using our heart dies and seam binding ribbon that was heat set to give it a vintage look.

Thank you for joining me! I hope you will visit again and hop on over to SCS member forum and see what everyone has been creating!

Enjoy your Day!
