Flourishes Friday Focus

THE CHALLENGE IS - A Sketch!

HERE'S HOW TO PLAY: Use this sketch for your creation. Please use Flourishes stamps and when you wrap it up with a bow, just link up to the Christmas Spirit Challenge 12 thread in the Flourishes Contests and Challenges Thread subforum here and you'll be in the running to win!

What do you win? Well, 10 lucky winners will be handed one of the Alleluia Angel stamp sets!! If you upload to SCS, please use the keyword FLLCNOEL12. You have until April 30th at 5 PM EST to submit your cards. Flourishes will announce the winner when we issue next month's challenge!

Notice I did not use the sketch. Not because I didn’t want to, I just flaked and forgot. Duh. Sorry folks! But you do need to use the sketch to be in the running for the set so don’t flake like me!

I stamped my image on watercolor paper with Versa Fine black ink and painted it with SU re-inkers. I added some Diamond Glaze and ultra fine glitter to her wings and some Star Dust pen from Sakura on the stars. I used the Spellbinders Lacey Square die to mat the image which I cut out with the Spellbinders classic square die. The poinsettia is from Petaloo and I found a piece of velvet ribbon in my stash to layer on my patterned paper from Provocraft. The sentiment is stamped and cut out with a Spellbinders Tag die.

Need a little more inspiration? The Flourishes Design Team decided to join in on the fun, so hop on over and see...

It's very similar to the sketch, and if you hadn't mentioned it, I would have thought it was simply your interpretation. At any rate, it's absolutely gorgeous! Love your paper/color combo and the flower and wide velvet ribbon. Fabulous watercoloring, too!
