Listen from Within
Hi everybody! Hope you have had a great weekend! I have a card to share for the Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge. You can find out all of the details here. This weeks challenge is to frame it. I used my new Bees and Blooms stamp set from Flourishes for this card. It kind of has an Asian feel to me so I paired it with some really pretty paper from Authentique's Carefree 6 x 6 paper bundle. I scored and masked my image panel then stamped the blossoms. I colored the image with Copics but kept the colors very simple so the stippled blossoms could really shine. I sponged some Chamomile ink over part of the image and used a Atyou Spica clear pen to add some sparkle to the flower centers. The card layout is very simple and I used my good ol' gold leafing pen again....still loving it! I did a little stitching then added some gold photo corners to further frame things in. The sentiment font is just gorgeous in this stamp set! I am so glad I was able to play along in this challenge. This card is really outside of my usual decor, but I have been striving to push my boundaries a bit and I really like how this turned out! I hope you all have a great week and thanks so much for stopping by!
