The Time is Now

After a few days of peeks and tons of eye candy courtesy of the Flourishes Design Team, we're happy to share that the April sneaks are over and all of the sets we've been showing off are LIVE in the Flourishes Store HERE! Today, we bring you one more hop and this one will have you hopping past the garden gate to see a bevy of beautiful roses!
GardenGateGraphic
Garden Gate, illustrated by Marcella Hawley, takes the beauty of a shrub rose and makes it a card maker's delight! The set features one beautiful arched shrub rose branch and a fun-filled,whimsical scene welcoming you beyond the garden's gate. This 4 by 6" set also offers 5 beautifully scripted sentiments.
I went very simple (like I never do, right?) on this image and created it with no layers.  I created a Flourishes Classic White card stock card base and stamped the image and sentiment right on the front with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored it with Copic markers.

I sponged around the edges of the card with Distress Ink in Antique Linen and Walnut Stain.   I cut a couple of banners from scraps and added a fun leaf shaped ribbon tied with some kraft jute.   This is such a beautiful image to color and the sentiments are equally beautiful!
