TGIFlourishes Friday Faves!

Flourishes-Favorites 
Hi all and Happy Friday! Today, the Flourishes Design Team is letting the creative juices flow and decided to pick up their favorite sets to serve up a little weekend inspiration for all of you! As you make the hop, you'll see a bunch of different sets being used. What does that mean? A lot of different kinds of eye candy! YUM!

On to my creation!

While we were supposed to pick a favorite set for today - I picked an image that I love and think is just gorgeous but have hardly got the chance to use! It's the large image from Flourishes' Magnolia set.

I stamped and colored up my image -- stamping with Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto Flourishes Classic White Card Stock. Colored it up with Copic markers (check out my list below for the color families I used) and then I used the "outside the edge" technique after my image was all colored up. That's when you let a portion of your image fall outside of the die cut shape by fussy cutting and setting the cut image on the inside of the die. If you want a great tutorial on this -- Diane Zechman did a fabulous one over on SCS HERE! From there -- the rest is just matting it all up -- with some fun My Mind's Eye paper, sheer ribbon, paper piercing and pearls! Ta da!!!!

As you make the rounds, you'll also see a new name on our designer link list! Guess who is joining us??? This is Ms. Amanda Havon's first post as a senior design team member -- so be sure to stop by her place and tell her congrats!!

Are you ready for some fabulous creativity? Head on over and see our ever-so-talented Flourishes designers!

Hope you have a fabulous and creative weekend! See you back here soon!
