A little different...

I got these new Flourishes stamps by Rhonna Farrer/Autumn Leaves. They are really cool! These are clear stamps, which make it very easy to place all the flourishes together. I was very glad that the store ordered them in, and held them for me. Apparently, only 2 came in, the rest were back-ordered. Anyway, I was itching to use them yesterday, but I had already made evening plans. So today, I pulled together this somewhat strange card. The red paper is the Dasher Tree Skirt paper. I made a transparency overlay to go over top. The Seasons Greetings was printed in the very popular font Porcelain on my laser printer. I stamped the Flourishes ( I got V. 2, by the way) in white stazon. It didn't feel complete enough, so I went about adding ribbon. I dyed the white and the organdy ribbons with a mix of Caribbean, Teal, and Glorious Green inks. This light blue might seem like a surprising choice, but I had seen it work several times over this week, since Red and Caribbean were this week's colour challenge. The blue ribbon also brings out the little flecks of blue in the Basic Grey paper.
