Flourishes Sneak Peek Day 1 and a Throwdown

Today is the first day of Flourishes sneak peeks starting with the set Paperwhites.

Paperwhites Graphic

I love Paperwhites for the holidays and need to get mine started so I have blooms for Christmas!   This is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black on Flourishes Classic White card stock and colored with Copics.

I used patterned paper from the Jovial line by Basic Grey.  The decorative edge was created with a Martha Stewart border and corner punch.   I inked around the image panel and shaded around the flowers with chalk. 

I have a second card created with the same set that also uses the Color Throwdown colors today which are Soft Suede, Kraft, and Cherry Cobbler, yum!

I stamped the images on kraft paper and colored with Prismacolor pencils and oms.  I added a very simple sentiment with ribbons and pearls.  In hindsight I wish I had sponged the edges of my Spellbinders tag that the sentiment was cutout with, but if I tried it after is was attached it would have been a disaster!  I punched some ferns with a MS punch and tucked them under the sentiment.  Kinda strange looking?  Well, different anyway!
