June Beautiful World Tour

Hello Everyone and welcome to the Flourishes' Beautiful World Tour!!  If you've landed here care of Meredith's blog then you have arrived at the correct destination!!  If you've popped by chance, why not start back at the Flourishes Blog for all the fabulous inspiration the Beautiful World Tour Team have for you today! While traveling the world on the tour, why not leave a comment on each blog for your chance to win a Flourishes' stamp set of your choice!  Entries are open until June 30th!

This month our Hostess is Meredith and she's challenged us not only to use Neutrals, but to use Texture as well!! I've used the chair from Beach Life for my card today and coloured it with Copics from the Flesh Tones 1, Copper and New Browns Collections.  The texture comes care of embossing and some yummy May Arts mesh!


I've created the base with River Rock cut with Spellbinders 5 x 7 Detailed Scallops and layered with Chocolate Chip card.  Next is a piece of ivory card that's been embossed with Spellbinders' Bricks and Bark mBossibilities.  Across this I've added a piece of May Arts brown mesh.  I've stamped the chair and drink in Memento Rich Cocoa and coloured with Copics.  This has been cut out with circle nestabilities, matted with a dark brown circle also cut with circle nestabilities and matted again with a piece of River Rock cut with Stately Circles Nestabilities and then popped up on foam tape.

Stamps - Beach Life (Flourishes)
Paper - River Rock, Chocolate Chip, Ivory, Blending Card
