Flourishes August Release Previews ~ Day 2






MountainViewGraphicThere is something so majestic about seeing mountain wildlife in their element, and today we have an amazing scenic set to show off to you called Mountain View. It's an elk standing ready with a beautiful mountainside in the background - that's the centerpiece of this 4" by 3" set penned by Lauren Pope. Perfect for the guys in your life, this set features one main image as well as three sentiments. We think it's an impressive and stately image and our Design Team is ready to show it off to you bringing it to life! 

Mystery Blogger GraphicDon't forget to look for: Hidden among the Design Team's blogs today is our Mystery Blogger of the day. Comment on her blog and you could be chosen to win today's set! The more you comment, the better your chances.

I love this stately Elk with the mountain in the background.  I stamped the scene with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and colored it using the Copper Collection and the Warm Neutrals Collection.  I ink distressed all the edges using Pumice Stone Distress Ink to age it a bit too.
