My Favorite Flourishes

One more post today, please don't miss the last one, how often do I get two done in one day, anyways?
This week the Flourishes Design Team is issuing challenges in honor of their anniversary! This one I am participating in is using one of your favorite Flourishes stamps...
I have only a few Flourishes and I have to say I have more than one favorite...but this one I probably use most often, I love the feminine quality and the different looks you get if you use solid background, the black magic like my last one made with this set, or marker technique.
I also made a recipe of bath salts and used these little jars I use to hold buttons and primas from Hobby Lobby to hold these salts. Tied a lavendar polka dot ribbon around the rim and there it is!
I doubled this original recipe from Flourishes blog:
Bath Salts
1 cup coarse Sea Salt
1/2 Cup Epsom salts
1/2 tsp glycerine (found at pharmacies)
2-3 drops fragrance oil of your choice (I found at health food stores)
optional: 2-3 drops of food coloring
I doubled this and it made enough for 4 small jars and one larger one. I used the jasmine frangrance oil and added at least 6 drops then a bit has a heavenly fragrance. I already used this for a bath, and it was truly wonderful...about 1/2 of this jar is what I would use for a large soaking tub...appx 1/4 cup.
Enjoy the recipe and my thanks to Teresa Momber and this link here to see hers:
