Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge(FTTC48) and SCS CC252!

It is time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge(FTTC48)! This week Maki Jones is our challenge host. Maki is challenging us to a color challenge. Maki is giving us two colors and we have to choose one. Sort of like a 2 +1 color combo. The colors are black and yellow plus another color of your choice! Have fun playing along with us. We look forward to seeing what you create!

I decided to create a collage double tag design. I may make this a bookmark instead, though. I love the way it turned out. I am using Flourishes Damask Background, Spring Ephemerals, Sweet Peas, and Seasonal Wreaths stamp sets. I chose the black and yellow with the third color being red. Can never go wrong with red, black, and yellow!

I shadow stamped the main bleeding hearts image in red. I stamped off a couple of times and thumped the damask background. I added script sentiment from Sweet Peas randomly. I finished with Thanks from the Seasonal Wreaths set.

This card is for today's SCS Color Combo Challenge(CC252)!
Bermuda Celery Hunters!

Bermuda Bay, Certainly Celery, and Handsome Hunter. This week's dessert option is to use pink in any form other than cardstock.

I am using Flourishes Summer Blossoms and Strawberries stamp sets. For this card, I chose to sponge over a subtle textured sizzix plate. I rocked and rolled the leafy stem in spring moss, handsome hunter, and pool inks. If you look closely, you can see all three hues as well as a blending of these colors. I used dp to punch flowers to add to the stem. I finished the flower with tiny silver pearls. I layered a button ribbon detailing and added a MS butterfly to complete my card. I think it is rather simple in design, but I do love how it turned out.
