Flourishes New Release is HERE!

  Flourishes-Favorites 

We’re wrapping up our January New Releases at Flourishes and we’ve had a fantastic time showing off these beautiful sets to you this week. Today the Senior Design Team brings you one more round of inspiration -- with our FAVORITES in this release!

On to my creation! When I first stamped this image -- I had an idea of cutting it out and popping it up and.... then I said, why? This image is just so beautiful all on it's own! So, I vowed that I would make this a clean and simple creation!

I stamped my image on Flourishes Classic White-- that beautiful peony from the new Flowers for Jan set -- in Tuxedo Black Memento ink and then colored it up with my Copic Markers using the Lenten Rose, Sunflower and Pistachio collections grouped by Flourishes. Around the outside of my image, I grabbed YR01 and YR0000 and added a little shading and "antiquing" around the outside. After I was done with that, however, I decided that I needed a little something more. So... out came the paper piercing tool! I used my template to make a double border, which I think is a fun little statement.  Add a sentiment from the set, pierce the edges, add a little shading, some beautiful 1/4" silk ribbon and, of course, a little splash of bling! 

Here's a close up of my flower... sigh. Aren't Marcella Hawley's illustrations just the bestest ever? She's so talented!


And that, my friends, is it! I can't wait to hop around and see what the rest of the Flourishes Design Team whipped up this Friday! How about you?
