FLOURISH



I just love that word...flourish. And I have always loved that particular type of design, so I was so very happy when my 2nd attempt at etching with one of my favorite stamps turned out just how I wanted. I had tried the etching thing a few months ago, but I was not at all happy with the results. Thanks to an excellent tutorial on Objects and Elements blog, I got it figured out. I see much more of this in my future.....the mind is racing, but for now I am happy with a good start. You know when you make something and inside it just screams "me". Well, this is one of those moments for me. I know it doesn't look earth moving, but oh I have been moved!
Thanks for looking , commenting and visiting, You all keep me moving!
