FTTC78 – NO Embellies!!

 

SONY DSC

Hello everyone~

It is time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge (FTTC78) !! This week Dee Jackson is our host.  Dee is challenging us to a limited supplies challenge. The limit?  NO Embellishments. What does this mean? It means that we let the image we use speak for itself. We CAN use ink, stamps, paper, punches, die cuts, and coloring tools.  We cannot add rhinestones, prima flowers, buttons, pearls, ribbons, brads, etc.  We would love to see what you create with this limited supplies challenge.

 

I have been using embellishments every card I make for a loooong time so this was a quite challenge for me. However, I love the point of what challenge is about….and Flourishes stamps are just perfect for that! I used this beautiful images from Humming Along set. I stamped the image with Memento tuxedo black on the iridescent cardstock. Love the shimmer on the paper :):) Then I colored with Copic markers (most of colors were used Tiger Lily Collection, Evergreen Collection, Green Grass Collection and Spruce Collection).I think the card turned out just wonderful with no embellishments. Don’t you think so too?

 

This card is also submitted to the Flourishes NEW monthly challenge, Bring Back Beautiful Challenge (BBB01)!! Be sure to check out the challenge with the new fabulous BBB challenge team on the first Monday of every month!!

 

 

Of course, don’t forget to check out other FOF’s creations!
