Vintage Carousel

Enjoy the Ride Graphic

Check out the final new Flourishes release for July, Enjoy the Ride.  I love this image!  You can really take it in any direction, but I decided to go vintage with it, yet again.


I colored this with Copics on Flourishes Classic Ivory card stock then spritzed it with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist in Vanilla Breeze.  I then cut it out with a Spellbinder Nestabilities die.   I used a piece of Bo Bunny dot (yes, I have polka dot issues apparently!) on the ivory card base and added some of this beautiful slate gray braided trim to either end.  I created a canopy to top my carousel with a piece of striped paper, which was a scrap and I can’t remember the maker, and popped part of it up using dimensional adhesive foam.  I just finished it off with some buttons. 

Wait until you see the amazing creations the rest of the DT came up with!  Check them out here:

  • Christine Okken
  • Dawn Burnworth
  • Julie Koerber
  • Laura Fredrickson
  • Leslie Miller
  • Stacy Morgan
  • All of the new sets are available now over at the Flourishes shop so go get ‘em while they’re hot!   Don’t forget the Christmas in July sale too-all Christmas sets are 25% off until the 18th!

    This is really so sweet Danielle, it really does feel like candy to me. Your awning is beautifully done too and I love the braided cord too.

    What a fantastic way to do the awning! I MUST remember that. Beautiful coloring and shading of the horse. You always rock the coloring! BTW, I've got polka dot issues, too, so bring it on!
