Hi - it's been a beautiful day here, so was pottering about doing stuff outside & in. Then I remembered the one word wonder!
The word today over on One Word Wonder is flourish. I searched through my stash trying to decide what to make - I decided on an ATC.
I painted my ATC with some Decoart Americana acrylic paint in Burnt Umber. I then covered this with Ranger Distress Crackle paint in broken china. Once it had crackled I went over with Metallic Gilding Wax from Creative Expressions in Golden Light. I also went around the edges with the gilding wax. I stamped my sentiment, from Creative Expressions Button Floral, with Ranger black archival ink & heat embossed with clear embossing powder from Inkadinkado. I used my GC to cut out my Spellbinder Shapeabilities die Fantastic Flourish One. I painted the die cut with Cosmic Shimmer watercolour paint - Emerald Gold for the leaves/stems & Lavender Shine for the flowers.
Hope you had a good day, thanks for stopping by,
