It is time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge(FTTC87)! This week Cindy Haffner is hosting. She is challenging us to a sketch she has designed. As far as sketches go, there is not much of an explanation necessary. You can turn it and modify the shapes to fit your size card, but in the end, it should still look like the sketch. Good Luck! We cannot wait to see what you create with it!


I am using Flourishes Fuschias In Bloom stamp set.  I used one of the images in the stamp set and stamped the background panel using a white pigment ink that I embossed in white.  I then sponged over with so saffron ink to make this beautiful Dp by Me background paper with the emboss resist technique.  Next, I added the elements of the sketch with various textures.  I then stamped the main fuschia using a white pigment ink and embossed in white. I sponged a bordeaux ink over for the emboss resist technique and buffed the white so that any residue of the bordeaux was removed from the white space.  I am using Flourishes Classic Ivory cardstock and Spellbinder's Lacey Circles Nestabilities.  I finished with some Zva Clear Crystal Flourishes and my bow! 

This card is for a few challenges this week!

  6. Hey, GF, I started your CC thread, so they now know the colors and the dessert option. It's not as complete as your usual post, but it will get the ball rolling. Hope you get your computer kinks worked out...they are wonderful when they work, but a pain in the posterior when they don't work!
