Flourishes September New Release - Day 4

Hello friends - welcome to Day 4 of the Flourishes LC New Release for  September.  If you came from the Flourishes LC Blog you are in the right place.  Today is the fourth day of the new release and we are showcasing a wonderful new stamp set called Coastal Christmas.  illustrated by Beverly Cole.  

 I have to say that I love this stamp set - it is perfect for an Australian Christmas, where we do not have snow but instead are in the middle of out very HOT summers - beach weather for sure!





I have stamped the images onto Flourishes Classic White card stock using black ink and coloured them using watercolour markers.  They have been cut out and popped up; using 3D Foam Squares; onto embossed cardstock and sponged using using white and light teal/blue ink.


The pillar and seagull have also been coloured using watercolour markers, hand cut and popped on on 3 D Foam Squares just behind the end of the dinghy.  The sentiment is stamped using black ink and added to the top left corner of the card.
