FTTC40 -- Neutrals with Colored Image


Happy Tuesday everyone~
It is time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge(FTTC40)!! This week Kimberly Crawford is our challenge host! Kimberly is challenging us to a limited supplies challenge! Our challenge is to combine a colored image, texture or textures, and any shades of neutrals we want. You can pack on the layers and textures just make sure you include an image to color and use only neutral cardstock. Just so you know you can us any combination of whites, creams, blacks, browns, and grays! So make your cards pop with texture and a beautifully colored image! We cannot wait to see what you create!

I have to tell you....I'm so satisfied how my card turned out!! I usually love using colors and this challenge is actually THE challenge for me, lol. But this made me rethink how beautifully the neutrals stood the Flourishes images out!!
I stamped those beautiful images from Dove & Holly set on classic ivory cardstock. Then I colored the doves with Water Collection & Warm Neutrals Collection for shading, the holly with Evergreen Collection & Poppy Collection. The small dove was layered with dimensional adhesives.Th edges on the back panel was scored to give a little dimension and added the Kasier's pearls. To complete the card, I simply added the ribbon and button.
The finised card size is 5" x 5".

Stamps: Dove & Holly (Flourishes)
Paper: classic ivory (Flourishes), textured black (Bazzil)
Ink: Memento tuxedo black (Tsukineko), Copic collections from Flourishes - Water, Warm Neutrals, Evergreen, Poppy
Accessories: pearls, ribbon, button
