It's a Beautiful Challenge!
Hello Everyone and welcome to the very first Flourishes Bring Back Beautiful Challenge! This team was started by Flourishes to truly showcase beauty in card making – whether it just be in a beautifully colored image, a fabulous way to incorporate an embellishment or a new twist on a card layout. Today kicks off our first challenge with a look at one of the things that can evoke a lot of beauty in card making – COLOUR! Here’s your challenge: pick your favorite medium – watercolor, colored pencils, markers, alcohol inks… the sky is the limit! Show off your color and join us! Link up your Bring Back Beautiful Challenge creation HERE to enter. If you upload to SCS, please use the keyword BBB01. You have until August 31st to enter! As we unveil our challenge for September, we’ll share our True Beauties – those card makers who wowed us with this challenge! Winners will be featured on the Flourishes Blog and will receive a True Beauty blog button to display proudly on their blog!
A Year in Flowers 1 stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black on X-press It Blending Card and coloured with Copics - Y21, Y35, Y38, YG11, YG13, YG17, B0000. It was then cut out with Large Circle Nestabilities and matted with the matching Circle Scallop and popped up on foam tape on top of the Label 1 Nestabilitities layer. The sentiment is from Flourishes' Tag Lines set and has also been stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black and cut out with Ribbon Tag Trio Spellbinders and attached to the card with some 1/2" white satin ribbon.
