As Flourishes October Release week is continued, we have Noon Time Challenge (FLLCORW1) for you to play!
Last release, we challenged players to come up with a fun and unique twist on a challenge, suggest it and they could win a chance to be in the Flourishes spotlight – not only would their challenge be picked, they would be the superstar of the day ushering the challenge as well! Our first challenge hostess this noon is the talented Suzanne Czosek! We loved her challenge to use your own name in a creative way!
How to Play: Simply use your monogram as the inspiration for your creation! So, if your name starts with an “J” – add jewels! What about “B” –add a bow! How about a “P” – use a punch! Just that simple! Just make sure you share your initials and the things you used on your creation that were name inspired! When you are done, link your creation back up here using our inlinkz widget. You need to do that in order to be in the running. If you upload to SCS, please use the keyword FLLCORW1. You have until Friday, October 14th at 5PM EST to enter! Let’s get that name game started and get creative!
Here is my take.
This beautiful image and greeting were from October release set, Meet Me Under the Mistletoe. It’s no doubt that the images are beautiful, but what I love most is the different sentiments in the set! Another wonderful holiday stamps from Flourishes!
My monogram is M, I, J. Here is what I did to use my monogram…”M” – Masking, “I” – Inch panels and “J” – Jewel.
The image was colored with Copic markers. Then I masked it and added the colors on the background with distress inks and a sponge. The greeting piece was also sponged with the ink. The inch panels were embossed with an embossing folder. To finish off, I simply embellished with rhinestones and pearls.
Be sure to check out each of the Flourishes designer’s blogs for more inspiration!
