Flourishes Release Week is HERE!

While the calendar says December, Flourishes decided to kick off their new releases with a beautiful botanical that could warm hearts all year long! Are you ready to see a sneak of the first December set?


This set gorgeously drawn by Marcella Hawley offers not only a cluster of clematis adorned with a gorgeous peacock butterfly but single images that you can mix and match to create endless looks. Not to mention, there's a handful of beautiful sentiments to match!

Would you like to win this set? Head on over to the Flourishes Blog and leave some love in the form of a comment to be in the running for the daily giveaway!

Now, on to my creation! When Marcella first showed me her drawings, I gasped. I absolutely loved the butterfly in this set. So, I wanted to showcase this little "lady" all on it's own. So, I stamped on Flourishes Classic White and masked and let the fun begin!

After I stamped and masked, I colored the butterflies up with Copic markers and used the Tigerlily, Flesh Tones 2 and Cool Neutrals collections grouped by Flourishes. I used the drop shadow technique and just shaded the areas that might have a shadow. I started with the C05, and then added C03 and C01 and blended with C00 to create the look. After I was finished, I matted it up on some Basic Grey Ambrosia paper, added a punched sentiment (from the set), added some black bling and some ribbon and... done!

I had so much fun with this set that... I spent a ton of time playing!

I'll be showing off those creations in the coming weeks! ;-) In the meantime, be sure to hop on over and see what the Flourishes gals created using this beautiful and timeless set!
