Which one is which?  Will the real Katie in London stand up!  lol!  Kathleen here with another layout with some incredible flourish chippies!  My daughter and I took a quick trip to ole foggy town and she found this bench with this book cover poster on the back.  What a perfect photo op!

I wanted to give this layout a  city feel.  I used the Distressed Plaid set 2 rubber stamp  to create the bottom border.   Under the lions (reference to Trafalgar Square) I used the Grunge Icicle border stamp  in red.  These stamps are sooooo incredibly versatile!!   I love them!!  You will be seeing a lot more of them in the future.  They are simply must haves!!

I adore these flourishes!!  This is Flourish 15 which received first a  layer of pasted ink, then random touches of bolivian blue Silks, followed by spritzing of Shimmerz Vibez sunset strip and Spritz truffle.  It gave it that wonderful grunge feel.

I hope this will inspire you to use those “Christmas” stamps for your everyday projects!
