Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge (FTTC #37)

I am really getting into participating in all different challenges. It’s forcing me to get my projects done. Not hat I don’t want to do them, it’s just hard finding the time. So, if I’m doing a challenge, at least I have a deadline. This week the Flourishes team offered 4 sketches to choose from. Actually, it’s one sketch that they rotated, so you could choose your positioning.

I needed to make Thank You cards from Rhiannon’s Blessing, so I used this sketch. And, amazingly, I got all of them made in one evening!

As much as I love circles, I wanted to do something with a little more pizzazz. Do you recognize this shape? It’s the outline of the Petal Point inks from Color Box! I cut around the container with my Coluzzle blade and mat and voila! I was really please with how perfectly my stamped image’s flowers matched the patterned paper I used. I inked the edges of almost everything to add a little “more” to this simple but nice design.

I added some Stickles and that’s about it. I think it’s sweet, which isn’t exactly the way I’d describe my style! But since they’re Thank You cards, I think they are just right! Now… I just have to write out all of the inside messages!

Standing in the Clouds with ADfD

Hello! I have a new card with a lovely image from A Day for Daisies to share with you today. The digi is called Standing in the Clouds.

I colored this beauty with Zig Clean Color Markers and a water brush. Here's a close up.

My background was created with the Piasso Stencil from Dreamweaver (available from Stampendous), White VersaColor Ink (from Imagine), a sponge dauber, and Detail White Embossing Enamel. Then I sprayed the background with Sheer Shimmer Spritz in Frost. You'll see that better in the photo below. The entire background looks frosty. My sentiment is from the Soaring Sentiments set. I edged it and my card base with Bahama Blue and Danube Blue Memento Ink, which really matched her jacket perfectly.

See the pretty shimmer? I love the Sheer Shimmer Spritzes, and I encourage you to give them a try. I'll have another project for A Day for Daises soon, and our February challenge will be posted on Friday. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
