Both of these sets were masterfully drawn by Flourishes' resident artist Marcella Hawley. Each one in a style that only Marcella can do! They richly define the feel of the season! Both the Falling Leaves and the Seasonal Wreaths sets will hit the Flourishes store right after our Power Hour Release Party Friday night! Woo-hoo! So, mark your calendars! The party starts at 9 Central right HERE on the Flourishes forum over on Splitcoast!
Want to see what I cooked up? I decided to ink up the Seasonal Wreaths set and chose rustic colors that are actually more holiday like than fall!
Now to the mechanics! I stamped my wreath using Memento Rich Cocoa ink and then colored them up with the Dusty Rose and the Fields Copic Collections. The pussy willow in the wreath was colored with the Cool Neutrals set. I only used the two lightest colors in the collection though to spot on some color. After that, I sponged on some Antique Linen Distress Ink around the edges of my circle that I cut out using a Classic Circle Nestabilities die and then I matted it on to a shape cut with the Labels Three die. After I embossed my shape, I used a light sandpaper to rough out the edges. The rest of the card - I added some Kaiser Craft pearls, added some stiching, a decorative border punch, some fun BasicGrey paper (Wassail) and some gorgeous olive silk ribbon.
Here's a close up of my wreath. I just think this image is such a classic!The Senior Design Team created some gorgeous projects that truly capture the beauty of this time of year! So, be sure to hop on over and see!
