Fabulous Flourish

On the fabulous Diva group our September challenge was to create cards using a flourish. I know my friend Angie will know how long I've struggled to use this paticualar TAC stamp LOL.

I bought it since my DH is a train nerd but have since not been happy with any card I've attempted to make UNTIL NOW! I took the stamp and inked it using Close to Cocoa and then trimmed the edges and sponged them with the same Close to Cocoa. Finally I wadded up a piece of scrap paper and rubbed more than mustard over the image to help "age" it. The flourish was stamped on mustard colored cardstock using the same cocoa ink and then again using the same scrap paper added dabs of ink. I can't wait til the next challenge Ladies :)

You did great with it! I have looked and debated about that stamp so many times but have the same concerns with what I would do with it.
Great job!
