February Beautiful World Tour!

Hello everyone!  And welcome to Vancouver, Canada!  I can't believe it but, it's already February and time for another Beautiful World Tour!  I hope you all have had a great start to 2013!

If you have arrived from Iwona's Blog, then you are in the right place.  If not, please head over to the Flourishes Blog to start from the beginning.

One lucky winner is chosen from the comments each month to WIN their choice of Flourishes stamp set.  All you need to do is follow the hop and leave comments along the way.  You do not need to comment on every stop, however, the more you comment on, the bigger your chance of winning!

This month, Iwona has whipped one of her gorgeous sketches for us:

Here is what I created using this fabulous sketch:

With Valentine's Day just around the corner, I decided to create a card for my sweetheart.  I stamped my main image using Flourishes Love Sweet Love stamp set and coloured it in with Copic markers.  I then cut it out using Spellbinders Classic Circles, sponging it with Distress Ink and matting it on a larger Classic Circle which was then layered over a doily.  I added a seam binding bow and a sentiment tag which was stamped in red ink with a sentiment from the Flourishes Love Notes stamp set.  It was also sponged with Distress Ink.  Lastly, I added a large red rhinestone over the centre of the bow and some pearls to finish it all off.

I used the following Copic Marker Collections from Flourishes:

Anyway, I hope you enjoyed your stop here in Vancouver.

Your next stop is...

Happy Stamping!
