I Flourished and Swirled today...Instructions and how to's...

Oh, I am such an addict...LOL...these flourish/swirl die cuts are so cool...the pink and green ones here started out as chipboard, coated with off white acrylic paint, when dry, I used Ranger Alcohol inks and gold metallic mixative on them...they are so cool...the blue one, was a white cardstock die cut I used blue metallic paint to color the entire die cut then sponged on some gold metallic paint for an accent color...very yummy colors in real life...
I started a coaster book project today, using on of the swirl die cuts, painted with blue metallic paint, then sponged on some gold...All stamps are from Innovative Stamp Creations, I used Ranger Glossy Accents over the word Cherish, but it was not dry enough to put the book together...
Close up details of the flourish on this tag book...

I started out with a chipboard tag for the cover, colored it by rubbing the Adirondack Wild Plum pad directly onto the tag...I stamped the swirl image from Innovative Stamp Creations with Library Green Archival ink...then over stamped with Gold Brilliance and a background crackle stamp...I cut two other tags to do the layering with...one from a sage green color and one from a plum color cardstock...tore those tags to layer on the cover...added the flourish die cut and prima flower...I use Gold metallic dimensional fabric paint to make my flower centers, quick simple and easy...Swirl/Flourish die cuts available on my studio blog at http://thestudioinpreston.blogspot.com/
