Happy Tuesday everyone~
It is time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge (FTTC90)!! It is the last Tuesday of the month so we have a guest challenge host. This month's guest is Linda Coughlin. Yippie!! Linda is challenging us to Anything Goes But Buttons and Bows. There are so many wonderful embellishments to use for accents on our paper crafts, but all too often we fall back on our old favorites. This week, let's stretch ourselves and see how creative we can be in embellishing our cards. We want to see what you can do without using buttons or bows.
It’s a kind of tough not to use ribbons for me but I managed to clear Linda’s challenge with using rhinestones & pearls :):) I decided to use the gorgeous set, Fanciful Flourishes. I stamped the silhouette butterfly with Memento Sweet Plum on the white cardstock pieces and vellum cardstock pieces three times. Then I stamped the flourish pattern butterfly with Brilliance Graphite Black on each vellum butterfly. After cutting out the vellum butterflies, I attached them on the cardstock butterfly, just the body part so that the wings are lifted up from the base.
I used the sketch from Clean & Simple Stamping (FTL113).
