Swirling with Friends!

Hellooooo!  This week we are using SWIRLS on our projects over at the TANDO CREATIVE BLOG.  I have been a bit nostalgic with mine and gone back to my earliest Stampotique stamps to create a 'friends' picture using a Tando Creative 6x6 inch  FRAME for my base as well as the BLOCK FLOURISH (you get 2 in a pack)

The block flourish has been painted in the same way as the frame using Americana Bahama Blue and then some accent dots stamped over in Orange VersaMagic.  The flourish was then glued to the top to become a part of the frame.  The background is patterened paper which has been gessoed and the same accent dots stamped randomly.  The dotty stamp is actually some waste packaging :-D  Always worth looking at plastic bottoms hahaha!

The figures have been stamped and coloured with Alcohol Markers and the sentiment is PC generated.  Here are the TANDO pieces that I used...
