Flourishes Sneaks Day 3: Anemones!

There are some sets that are so touching and fit a purpose that you really needed.  They are sets that conveys those messages of concern and care that are really meaningful. We think this is one of those beautiful sets!  We're pleased to introduce to you....  

  AnemonesGraphic 

The latest offering from artist Sam Pickard is a perfect stamp set to have on hand to let your friends in need know that you care. This 4 by 6" set features a beautiful bunch of Anemone flowers, a single stem, plus five beautifully scripted sentiments all with a calm and caring message.

On to my creation....

When I saw this image, I saw it bathed in sunlight and with more of a sketchy, watercolor feel. Even though I picked up my Copics to color this image, I wanted that loosey, goosey look -- one without precision. So... here goes! I stamped the Anemones on Flourishes White Card Stock, trimmed, paper pierced and then had some fun with my Copic markers. See below for the three collections that I used. After I finished coloring up my image, I did sponge some Distress Ink in the shade of Scattered Straw. From there, it's just matting up my image! I layered a couple patterned papers onto both Flourishes Classic White and Classic Black. Add some silver cording and... almost done! I did stamp my sentiment using Versafine Black Onyx so that my sentiment would really pop. If you've never tried that ink -- it is a super true black. you can't use it with Copic markers because it will smear, but for single things like sentiments -- works perfect!

Here's a close up of my flowers.....


And that, my friends, is it! I think you'll love this set and I'm excited to see what the rest of the Design Team has in store! Also... you'll need to leave some comments and try to figure out...
