Flourishes Color Challenge

Happy Friday! Today is the Pre-Release Challenge over on Flourishes Blog. This is your chance to win our ENTIRE new release coming out next week. Simply be inspired by the colors below and then link your creation over on Flourishes blog to be in the drawing. Whohoo!!! Easy Peasy! Hope you can play along this week!

For my creation I pulled out my Butterflies and Blossom stamp today. My flowers are stamped onto classic white cardstock using memeno tuxedo black ink.
Several copic collections used today:




Since my new to me Spellbinders arrived today I decided to play around. This is Timeless Rectangles die cut using our Color Made Easy True Blue collection. Layered with a piece of scrap designer paper from the bin.

Took a lighter blue and die cut out with our Perfectly Pierced Victorian Oval that I cut in hald to make it fit the entire panel piece. Doubled up my white cotton lace so that it was thicker look and feel. The tied a ribbon layer with the matching Color Made Easy True Blue Dusk ribbon in the collection. After my flowers and butterfly were colored I cut around the image and popped the panel up on dimensionals. Added my sentiment which now I think with the beautiful piercing it is hard to see on the card, too late now. EEK! Lesson learned. Added a few snow white kaiser pearls and voila!
