ISC Beautiful Day

Isn't this flourish just divine? It will be available for purchase tomorrow from Innovative Stamp Creations. I can't show you the images from the 4 new sheets until tomorrow, but the flourish and sentiment are from 2 of the new sheets. The bird is from a recently released sheet called
Art 4 Frames II. The flourish (Artsy Victorian) was stamped using Ranger Clear Resist on Glossy White CS and brayered with Kaleidacolor Autumn Leaves. The bird was stamped and masked and then I stamped the flourish over the top. My bird got sucked into the background, so I made an adirondack alcohol ink polished stone scrap and stamped the bird again, cut it out and popped it up on foam dimensional tape. The layer was finished by stamping the sentiment from another new set to be released tomorrow called Thoughtfulness. The layer was spritzed with Memories Mists Bright Gold and I added dew drops to the bottom corner. The trim is from Hobby Lobby.
