Get your fall colors on!

This months Flourishes pre-release challenge is full of beautiful color! Use one, use a few, use them all! It’s up to you!

These are the yummy colors that Pantone says are in for the fall season ahead!



HOW TO PLAY: Simply incorporate one or more of these colors on your card or creation and you'll be in the running! After you create your card, be sure to head to the Flourishes blog and link up using our Inlinkz widget. You’ll need to share your link there to be in the running! You have until September 16th at 5PM EST to enter! This month we have 3 new stamp sets to share. The previews start next Wednesday and just think, you could WIN them all!

I pulled these colors from the Pantone palette for my creation: Bamboo, Ember Glow, Phlox, and Cedar.

I used the beautiful Zinnias set and stamped the image on water color paper. I painted it with Stampin’ Up re-inkers in colors to coordinate with my beautiful My Minds Eye 6x6 paper pad called A Beautiful Life. I used Lemon Flower Soft for the zinnia centers but thought it looked too bright so I dabbed Copic marker Y38 on top to tone it down. I used my Spellbinders Lacey Square die for the mat behind my image and hand cut the sentiment flag from water color paper. I used some ribbon, lace, buttons, and twine for embellishments.

We have a wonderful new addition to our design team…lets give a warm welcome to Tammy Hershberger! There’s lots of wonderful inspiration from the ladies below so make sure you pop over to check them out!

Oh my that's so soft and beautiful!! Love your painting with the re-inkers. Beate did a tutorial with those recently and Yvonne's work is so stunning too. I should give it a try because the results are just so gorgeous. I also like your embellishments. Everything just blends together perfectly!!
