Paperbabe Stamps January Release - Flourish and Grow Stamp Set - Alphonse Mucha-resque

Hello again. Today we're showcasing the Flourish and Grow stamp set and such a great set it is too! Perfect for building your own sentiment combinations or for that bold large sentiment that says it all, there are endless possibilities. I've combined it with the Flourishing Hair Stamps and Templates and the Female Face 3/4 View Left Dinky stamp set

Since my teens I've loved the work of Alphonse Mucha, I think, the original designer of illustrative posters and product advertising. 

I was lucky to see his original art in his birthplace, Prague and also a couple of years ago at an exhibition of his work at the Walker Gallery in Liverpool. I can highly recommend the Walker for pre-raphaelite art too. His four seasons series of posters have been the subject of a few stamp sets from various companies over the years. Anyway, I thought of  his artwork when I saw these sets and lots of possibilities for the stamps. This is how I ended up with a long panel card with the hair swirling down, it was easy to join in the separate curl stamps to the main hair stamp as well.

All of the new sets will be on sale in the Paperbabe Stamps shop tomorrow and of course there is some fantastic inspiration from Kim and all my teamies linked at the Paperbabe Stamps Blog.

Back soon,
Chris x

What's not to love about Alphonse Mucha your DL creation and use of the flourishes within her hair replicates that movement. Another beauty Chris, how lucky are we to be part of the DT.
Your Paperbabe faces are ever inspiring. Creative wishes Tracey xx
