It's Free for all Friday!

Hi all and welcome to another Free for all Friday, when the Flourishes designers get to pick up one of their favorites from the recent release and.... give you some more ideas on how to use this new and wonderful set!

So, click HERE to see this deal in the store and remember -- today's the last day! 

On to my creation!
I had this idea in my head for a while now and really thought this set would be perfect to give it a try! It was such an easy peasy card but I love the bold pop of color. All I did was use the largest floral cluster from the Roses Are Red stamp, stamped on kraft card stock using Versamark ink. I embossed using a detail white embossing powder and then grabbed some Aquamarkers. I didn't want to use Copics because the nib on the Copic marker can get damaged by touching the areas with embossing powder. Then, I literally took the fine point nib on the marker and scribbled! Yep, scribbled. I added color closest to the embossed lines and then drew the color out using the Aquamarker blender pen.

I matted it all up on a piece of medium red paper from the Poppy Color Made Easy paper collection, added some white seam binding ribbon, a punched tag and a sentiment from the Mix-n-Mug set and... ta da!

Here's a peek at that darling little tag (from the Perfectly Pierced Victorian Ovals die set).... 


And, if you wondered how I added the white embossed line, I used a Versamark Pen and a straight edge from my paper trimmer. I simply lined it up at the 1/4" mark all the way around my card and drew on my line, adding embossing powder afterward and embossing! I might use this trick more often!
Want to see what other creativity the Flourishes gals whipped up this week using the new sets? Just hop on over and see....

Hope you have a fabulous weekend! I have a fun one ahead. My daughter (who is in 4th grade) is in her first ever basketball tournament with some girls from her class. They are a hoot to watch because they are all just spit-fires. Should make for a fun weekend! Hope life is good wherever you are! Until next time!
