June Release Week Challenge

Flourishes is getting ready to release some awesome new sets for June.  To get started lets kick off release week with a challenge!

Star Spangled Challenge

Show your patriotism by using Red, White, and Blue if you hail from the United States!  If you are from another part of the world please use your flags colors for inspiration.

The red, white, and blue made me think of something masculine which made me turn to the set A Guiding Light.  I love the wonderful masculine images in this set.

The Boxer line from Basic Grey was great paper for these colors.  I stamped my image on Flourishes Classic White card stock and colored it with Copics.  I sponged around the image panel with Distress Ink in Weathered Wood and Faded Jeans.  I used a clear glaze pen on the top light of the lighthouse and a Stardust glitter pen to make the rays of light and add some shimmer to the water.  Some rustic twine and a charm finish off this simple layout.

Join in the release week challenge and you have a chance to win the entire June Flourishes release! Please use keyword FLLCJUNE11 when you upload your creation.   Deadline is June 10th at 5pm.   Head over the to Flourishes blog for all the details and to enter!

Now get some inspiration from our talented designers!
