FLLC May Release Challenge!!

Hello and happy Friday everyone~

Flourishes May Release's Sneak Peeks are going to start on Tuesday!! That means it's time for another Release Challenge to play along!! Here is the detail and be sure to visit Flourishes Blog for more information.

"May brings most of us to those warmer sunny days anticipating summer, and in some cultures May Day is celebrated by presenting loved ones with flowers or ringing the doorbell at someone's home and leaving behind a basket of flowers and treats....today we're bringing you flowers of our own, asking you to be inspired by the colors in this beautiful illustration..."


Here is my Colorful Creations Challenge card :)

I used Apple of My Eye set and I think I used all colors on the palette ;) I colored the image with Copic markers and cut sponged the mat with Memento Toffee Crunch. The sentiment was die cut with one of Perfectly Pierced Hourglass die set. The rest of the card was created with Classic Ivory cardstock, CME Rich Browns cardstock and the designer paper.

The rest of supplies:  Memento - Rich Cocoa, Angel Pink, CME ribbon - Pistachio-Moss Green, rhinestones, decorative edge punch, SB Nestabilities, Blending tool

A little tip from me.... For the blossoms, I used only R00, 11 and 12 and added YG91 for the center of the flowers. For the apples, I mixed the Sweet Pea & Dusty Rose collections. 

Do you like the image above? Well, next week you will see this very flower in its full glory as our designers sneak peak the work of a brand new artist at Flourishes -- Sam Pickard! Sam hails from England and many folks have seen her work on her blog - Planet Sam. We are so excited to share this artist's work on polymer! We know you will love what we have in store!
