Simon Says - show your favourite stamp

Yikes - this is a challenge and a half - ONE favourite stamp?? Who is Linda trying to kid... lol! Anyhow, Simon Says Show your Favourite Stamp is indeed this week's theme so I had to try and decide which it was.... it changes regularly.  I know lots of you will be surprised I didn't choose a Wendy or a Tim stamp!! (So am I...)

 However, I love flourishes and this Paperartsy one is gorgeous (from the Hotpicks 5 set)

I painted a canvas (5x7inches) with Paperartsy Fresco Finish paint (LOVE that paint!) in Honey Dew and a light brushing with Guacamole .

Stamped the flourish 4 times in the corners with black archival ink.

I die cut (paperartsy again!) some flowers out of Clearly for Art in white and clear and painted them with the same colours of paint as the canvas.  Stamped the flourish on the CFA and heated it to bend the petals.

Added some strips of tissue tape and 'dream' - stamp by Impression Obsession  - on the canvas.  Fixed the flowers to the canvas with silicone glue (which is what I used to stick the layers - and the pearls - with).
OK - now for Grungy Monday!!
