FF Chocolate Zinnias

Welcome to Flourishes Free for all Friday! A reminder that time is running out for our New Release Bundle of the June Stamp sets. If you missed the release be sure to check out the bundle for some savings! About 7 months ago we finally got a Hobby Lobby in our town. Now this is huge for us and it is always so busy with crafters you almost don't want to go. However the pull to create is so great you go anyways and deal with the crowd. ha ha Anyways on one of the visit I came across these gorgeous flowers in a cream color and brown shades. They were beautiful and the colors were so soothing that I have started to color some flowers in creams and browns. Flourishes Bring Back Beautiful team had a challenge awhile back of coloring all things creams and browns even the flowers were fabulous.

So I have picked up the colors and having a grand time with it. This is one of the flowers in the new set called Zinnias. Don't they look marvelous? I just want to eat them up they are so chocolate and sweet looking. I colored these flowers with Copic Collections Creamy, a touch of Flesh Tones 2 and the leaves in Fields. Very simple layout and textures to my creation. I really like how this turned out.
The Design team has some beautiful creations for you today:

My FIL 60th birthday is this weekend and we have a surprise party for him. hee hee I have had to avoid him and talking to him because I am a horrible liar, so its been hard for me. Clear Dollar Stamps Blog Hop is Sunday and I have a special surprise for you, so don't miss it! I know he will enjoy our surprise though. I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
