Such beautiful colors in Beate’s inspiration piece today.  And I totally went with them.


All images are from Flourishes.  The ornament is from their newly released set All That Glitters.  The sentiment is also from a newly released set Sleigh Ride.  The background is Damask.  The sentiment and background were stamped with craft inks.  The ornament was stamped with Bravo Burgundy classic ink and VersaMark on watercolor paper and then clear embossed.  It was then watercolored with Regal Rose and Bravo Burgundy reinkers.  A Bravo Burgundy marker was used to outline the flourishes on the ornament.


The ribbon treatment was inspired by this card by Jan Marie Curuso.
