Happy Tuesday! It is time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge(FTTC111)!   I am the challenge host this week and I have a fun challenge for you to try this week. I am challenging you to use the some of the other stamps in you stamp sets. I am sure many of you have purchased stamps for one main image in the set, but some of the other images in the set have not seen ink yet. So, see if you can ink up some other stuff in in the set.  We would love to see what you create!


For my card I am using Flourishes A Year in Flowers 1, A Year of Flowers 2, A Year in Flowers 3,  and Life Lines for the  center sentiment quote. I inked every flower in all three sets and used all the little flower name/month words to create my card.  I stamped my image using Flourishes Classic Ivory cardstock.  I colored the flowers using Flourishes Copic Color Collections.  I finished my card with some black/white gingham ribbon, a clear starburst, and clear rhinestones accenting.  

Check out the other blog team designers to see what they created with other stamps in a set! 
Cindy   Dee   Silke   MakiTammy, and 
March's Guest Designer Amanda Havon!


If the Shoe Fits: Recipe: Distress Inks, flowers, clear bling
Sew Many Challenges:  Spring Fling
Let's Ink it Up:  Die cuts/Punches

  1. Your sponging on the sentiment panel is fabulous, Betty. I would run from that DP but you have used it fabulously on that card (thus you are the Diva and I am not LOL!). Perfect touch with the Gingham bow. Early Happy Birthday too (((hugs))).
