Flourishes Flowers on Friday


Wouldn’t it be nice to get flowers every Friday? At least I can cut my own from my garden and have them to enjoy inside…because you can’t go outside in this heat, yikes! For those of you suffering the heat wave, take it easy! Good days to stay in the air conditioning and craft!

I’ve used Bee My Honey from Flourishes today and have chosen the floral bouquet. It’s stamped on Flourishes Classic White card stock and colored with Copic Markers.


All of the patterned paper is from the Lemonade paper pad by Basic Grey. The pink cardstock is Bazzill. After coloring with Copics I added Diamond Glaze and ultra fine glitter to the bee’s wings and shaded around the flowers with a Prismacolor pencil and odorless mineral spirits (OMS). I added faux stitching around the image with a fine point sharpie marker in a mustard/gold color and then sponged over that with a Versa Magic Dew Drop in Wheat.

I used a Martha Stewart border punch for the pink border and added a Prima flower over the pink velvet ribbon. The image is cut out with Classic Circles by Spellbinders and the mat is from the Blossom dies, and the tag made with Tag Dies that I can no longer find on the website…must be discontinued. Too bad, I love these tags!

Ooh, and glitter! I added glitter randomly around the image and also in the flower centers. You should be able to see it in the close up at the top and if you click on the image to enlarge.

Don’t forget that today is the last day to get the entire July release for 10% off. You can find it here! Hurry before you miss it!

And check out all the lovelies from our lovelies!!
