Flourishes Friday

Happy Friday!  Ah, the start of the weekend is always happy. 

And a special birthday shout out to Mike, the shipping guy, Mr. Flourishes himself!   Wishing you a wonderful day! 

I hope you are enjoying the new May sets from Flourishes.  I paired up the new On The Porch set with the 123 Create Kit Genuine

123 Create Kit Genuine Plus Banner copy

I love this new kit!  The ribbons alone are so pretty…but then there’s the fabulous paper pad and the great flowers, and pearls…love it!

I started by stamping the wicker chair image on Flourishes Classic White card stock with Versa Mark and embossed it with Detail White embossing powder.


I colored the image with Copic markers and shaded around it with Prismacolor pencils and oms.   I inked around the edges of the panel with Distress Inks in Antique Linen and Brushed Corduroy.   I added a few stitches and distressed the edges before adhering to the mat.  I used a Y21 Copic on the edges of the flowers and hand cut the sentiment banner.

Today is the last day to get the May Release bundle at 10% off-get it here!
