FTTC142–Out of the Box!

 

SONY DSC

Hello and happy Tuesday everyone~

I hope you had a great Halloween! I am sorry for hearing some of you could not do trick-or-treating last night due to the bad weather…I hope the weather will get better and back to normal … it is just too early to be winter!

I made this card for today’s Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge (FTTC142). Beate is challenging us a *Out of the Box* challenge – Stamp your image and let it partially hang out its frame/shape. She has a great tutorial HERE over Splitcoaststampers if you need to know how. Please visit Flourishes Blog for more information about the challenge. Looking forward to seeing your creation!!

For my card, I used Zinnias. I followed the tutorial to create my out-of-the-box design. The image was colored with Copic markers. The card was designed with the cardstocks and the designer papers. To finish off, I added the lace trim and swirl rhinestones.

 

 

 

Here is the Copic Collections I used.

 

This card has also been submitted to CR84FN Color Challenge (CR84FN41) and Sweet Stop Sketch (SSS132)revisited SSS77.
