Flourishes Free for All Friday


 

  
Free for All Friday with BorderThe weekend is here! Hopefully you have something fun in store for yourself. The Flourishes Senior Design team is delighted to bring you another round of inspiration created with our brand new and beautiful January New Release Sets. There is just so much more you can do with these stamps and we can’t wait to show you more. And, the good news is, you can still purchase the January New Release Bundle at a discount! Today is the last day this discount is available and we don’t want you to miss out!

I chose to make a card using the peony from the set Flowers for Jan.  Flourishes is well known for it's floral images, and I just can't resist coloring them.  They're a dream.  I stamped the peony with Tuxedo Black Memento ink onto Cryogen White cardstock and colored it with Copics.  I then cut it out, outlined the image with a stylus tool (I layed it over some sturdy foam), and burnished the back with the stylus between the outlines to puff up the image a bit.  After that I layered it over a stamped image that I framed using the Perfectly Pierced Classic Frames Template die (Flourishes).  Oh...I also inked the diecut piece with Anitique Linen while it was still in the die.

Lastly, I sprayed everything with Perfect Pearl Perfect Pearls Mist.  You can see the sheen a bit better below.


 

That's it for my project today, now hop on over to see what our very talented Design Team has in store for you today with these sets:
