Flourishes November Preview ~ Day 2

 

Hello again and welcome to Day Two of November Sneak Peeks! Now that you’re all warm and cozy from our fantastic hot-beverage set yesterday, today we’re going to celebrate all that’s warm and special about friendship. Introducing... Friendship and Flowers.

Friendship&FlowersGraphic

This set, illustrated by Sam Pickard will send sunshine to any friend - near or far! With a beautiful pincushion flower at the center of this set, you'll find a beautiful butterfly and beautifully scripted sentiments add just the right touch. Set measures 4" by 6”. We think it has the perfect heartfelt friendship sentiments in it and we know you’ll love it!

I chose to feature one of the sentiments and the sweet little butterfly in a vintage environment.  I stamped the butterfly with Gray Flannel Memento Ink, and colored it using two Copics:  RV23 and V0000.  The sentiment was framed using Flourishes' Perfectly Pierced Victorian Oval Template dies, and the Standard Oval and Scalloped Oval dies by Spellbinders.  I also inked the oval and stamped the flower, with Spun Sugar (Ranger Distress Ink), as a background to the sentiment, but it's hard to see in the photo.

Mystery-Blogger-GraphicThat about sums up my project, now the Design Team did a great job celebrating friendship with this set and we know you’ll be inspired.  So, while you’re hopping and looking at their creations, don’t forget to try to figure out who the Mystery Blogger is.
