SURPRISE! ANOTHER POST! I have been FRANTICALLY making cards here for the last couple of days! You should see me! Paper flying, snippets EVERYWHERE, I smell of Copics, & of course, my fingers are ALL INKY! Even my hair is sticking up all over! (No time to primp when you have "Master Pieces" to create, right? LOL)
So, have you been over to Flourishes yet????? Well, you HAVE TO GO!!!! All those challenges going on & LOTS of stamps to be won! Like I said in my last post I LOVE FLOURISHES!!! AND with this weeks releases, I have needed oxygen for all the excitement, because I've been gasping so much, I've been hyperventilating & have fallen out of my seat with their BEAUTY AND the designers GORGEOUS WORK! (No, I didn't hurt myself thankfully! heee-hee! ) IF you haven't been over there to see, SERIOUSLY, GOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!
Now as I said, I HAD TO play along! You could win THE WHOLE RELEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!
The first Challenge "Inside & Out":
What do you think? My card base is Kraft Card stock for an earthy feel, the image is by Flourishes- A Season Of Thanks; I used My Mind's Eye Designer Paper which gives an old country feel, Copics, Spellbinders Classic Oval, Tim Holtz Tea Stain, & Vintage Photo Ink, Brads that I colored with Alcohol markers for the color I wanted, carrying those little berries from the corn image over to the designer paper, Walmart ribbon tied using The Becca Bow Maker, Dimensionals & I distressed the edges for an old feel! There's nothing like Indian Corn for Fall!
Here's the INSIDE now:
Here I used the same Designer paper on the inside & I distressed the edges of the paper & added Tim Holtz- Vintage Photo Ink! The sentiment & the image is from the same set by Flourishes-A Season Of Thanks! I'm QUITE PLEASED with how this came out! It has a VERY ANTIQUEY FEEL which I LOVE!
Now, for the "Go Natural" Challenge!
With this challenge, you are to be inspired by nature...you could use the colors in the photo above, & use earthy elements!
Again, I was also inspired by the cool air & the changing of the leaves, & our up-coming Thanksgiving holiday! I wanted the feel of the first Thanksgiving gathering--- here is my card:
ANOTHER Flourishes Image! (A Season Of Thanks) Colored with Copic Markers, Penny Black -Rustic Canvas Designer Paper, Tim Holtz- Vintage Photo Ink, a little frayed burlap (maybe the first Pilgrims used it to carry in the harvest from the field), a little linen thread (this was used in all manner of sewing back then), an antler button ( to signify the venison the pilgrims had along with their wild turkey), some dimensionals, & I did some paper piercing, all on Kraft card stock, which I LOOOVE to use to get that earthy feel! I used SU ink to scrape across the papers edge for a rustic feel. Are you not LOVING this set???????? I didn't even use all the images in this set!
The challenge closes tomorrow at 5 p.m.! Like I said, you could win the WHOLE RELEASE!!!!! Winners will be announced on the Flourishes Blog on Saturday at noon, CST in the Winners Circle! Oh yes, you DON'T have to have Flourishes stamps to participate, but if you do, you get double the credit!
OK, let me take a breather here! I've been on a FLOURISHES STAMPING FRENZY remember!
Breathing a little better now & thankfully haven't fallen off my chair again!
See you next week with a "Love Story!"
Please DO leave me a comment!????! LOVING to hear from my "friends!"
