The Leaves are Falling!

Hi all and happy Friday! We have a fun treat for you today! Since Autumn was officially ushered in less than a week ago, we decided to pick up one of Flourishes' sets that honors the season and our design team is all using it today in their creations! We're talking about the set.....

Falling Leaves

 

 Isn't it a beauty? Even in black and white you can visualize the bold colors that will soon appear (and in some cases) are already appearing in real life! 

On to my creation!

I used the leaves in this set to create a frame around my sentiment. I stamped the Japanese Elm first (the green and red leaves), masked and then stamped the other two leaves. It looks hard but honestly, it was a breeze. I do have a secret weapon when it comes to masking, however, and it is THIS pen to fill in any gaps left behind by my post-it note! After stamping on Classic White with Tuxedo Black Memento, I used Copic Markers to color up my image. Add some twine, a button, some paper piercing and mat it all up on some fun decorative paper and.... ta da! (Check out my supplies list below for details on what I used to create!)

Here's a close up! I have to tell you, this did take a while to color but I have no idea how long because my mom invited me down to her house for coffee and it's amazing how you lose track of time when you're just hanging out, drinking coffee and chatting it up! :-)


And that, my friends, is it!  Below you'll find a link list to all the fine designers on Flourishes Senior Design Team. But first.... Flourishes is having a.....
