Ready for a little challenge?


Happy Friday Flourishes friends! Can you believe there are only 81 days until Christmas? In a few days we'll be giving you our October edition of new Flourishes Stamps all with a Christmas theme. And because we know YOU want a chance to win these beauties, this month we have a Color Challenge with a twist!

What's the challenge?

Your challenge is to create a Christmas Design without the use of the color Red or Green! Get creative and give all of those other colors in the wheel a chance to show their holiday style! Play in the challenge and you could win our whole October Release! Your keyword for entering into online galleries is FLLCOCT13.

On to my creation!

Because of the challenge, I decided to make my creation a breeze and pick up Flourishes 123 Create Kit called Isabella. I love, love, love the tones in this kit - lovely shades of grey and pink! And the embellies are great too! I took one of my shapes that I had already cut with my Silhouette for the Naturally Merry stamp set and then chose Copic Collections that matched the paper (see my supply list below for the colors that I used. After I was done coloring -- I just matted up my image with papers in the kit. I stamped my sentiment using Gray Flannel Memento ink onto a die cut shape from the Perfectly Pierced Classic Frames set. While my die was still on the shape, I sponged on some Spun Sugar Distress Ink.  Frame it with a snippet of silver paper, add some bling and... ta da!

Here's a close up of the holly that I colored up....

and here's a close up of the sentie!
