Happy Tuesday and hello Flourishes Fans!
We have a special treat for you today because we are kicking off the festivities for Day 1 of our Flourishes May Release Sneak Peeks and we have teamed up with the Friends of Flourishes Team to play along with the Timeless Tuesday Challenge (FTTC219) this week. Want a little peek at the set we’ll be showcasing today?
Our Glamour Girls stamp collection, illustrated by Lauren Pope, is a fabulous collection of lovely ladies and some classic "girl talk" sentiments perfect for all those charming gals in your life. This classy stamp set arrives just in time for Mother's Day! What more can you ask for?
Now on to our challenge… Denise Marzec is our Timeless Tuesday Challenge hostess this week and for her challenge, we want to see you use some "BLACK ACCENTS" on your card or project. Let's see you use some black matting, black die-cut images, black ribbon, or try the ever-popular "chalkboard" technique that's popping up all over the blogging world.
Here is my "black accents" card :)
Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with Copic markers. I die-cut the black mat and sentiment mat with Tailor-Made Classic Keyhole die set. The black mat was dry embossed and directly inked with white pigment ink. I also stamped the one of the sentiments on the CME Crocus cardstock and it was brushed over lightly with white acrylic paint. To finish off, I dressed the card with the black accents :)
The rest of supplies: Classic White cardstock, designer paper, black rhinestones, ribbon, beaded hat pin, decorative edger, embossing folder
Today we have both our Flourishes Finest Design Team AND our Friends of Flourishes Team sharing their "Black Accents" inspirations with you! Take a moment and leave some love on all of our designers' blogs.
