Glazed Flourish

Hello Friends

I decided I LOVED the look of yesterday's glazed heart (see it HERE) so I decided to create another card using the same technique.

The gorgeous Flourish you see on this card was actually cut from Pool Party cardstock, then quickly coloured using an aquapainter.  That's when the fun begins....
Glazed leaves add sparkle without even needing bling on the card

I used versamark to cover the entire piece, then applied clear embossing powder and heat-set.  This process was repeated a second time and the resulting flourish looks positively glazed with shellac!

This flourish now makes a statement, so I wanted to layer it on top of something equally "strong".  
Glazed Berries shine on equally shiny glazed doily

Our new Delicate White Doilies are just that...a bit too delicate to pair with the glazed flourish.  However, I realized that if I glazed them in the same manner (versamark and a coating of clear embossing powder, heat-set, then repeat), these doilies could transform into an embellishment that had as till gorgeous, but less "dainty" character.

I think if you look carefully at the photos, you will see how much more substance and character the glazed doily has.  The perfect backdrop for the glazed Flourish.

LOVE how this turned out!!

Paired with Crumb Cake and Emerald Envy cardstock, this glazed Flourish makes me very happy!
