FLIP is the Flourishes Loyalty Incentive Program! How do you become a member? Starting TODAY, the next time you go shopping in the Flourishes online boutique and spend $100 on a single purchase (not including taxes or shipping), you will receive this beautiful stamp set called Happy Thoughts! It was penned by artist Sam Pickard and the sentiments were designed by ME! Keep in mind, you can't purchase this set -- the only way you can get your hands on this lovely floral spray of Hydrangeas and these beautifully scripted sentiments is to become a FLIP member!
I wanted to let the hydrangea image shine in a broad but simple mixed-media background panel, so I kept my card layout super clean. I stamped the Hydrangea image multiple times on Neenah cardstock, then brayered over the panel with acrylic paint.
I added a little subtle stamping to the panel with the Antique Lace background stamp - it doesn't show well in the photo, but the pearlescent ink (Brilliance Pearlescent Ice Blue) gives a nice shimmer.
When the paint was dry, I added highlights, color, and shading with colored pencils (Prismacolor and Derwent Coloursoft), and colored the edges white.
AND.... this beautiful stamp set is only just the beginning! When you become a FLIP member, it's your pass to BIG SAVINGS!
