I created this card for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge. It was a tough one last week. We were to use NO embellishments. No ribbon, no brads, no rhinestones, no pearls….say WHAT? Definitely a challenge. For that I just picked a big image to cover most of my card. I also used the sketch from Midnight’s Madness Sketch challenge from last week.

First I stamped the Seed package from Flourishes Seeds of Kindness on one of Tim Holtz Mask Sheet. I cut out the mask and set it aside. Next I stamped the image on Natural White Neenah cardstock with Black Soot Distress ink. The image was covered up and the raspberries from Berry Sweet, also from Flourishes. The image was colored with Copic Markers (RV21, R24, RV29 (Berries), G21, G24, G85 (Leaves), E30, E31, E33, E34, E37 (Sign))


The image was layered on a Scalloped Frame cut and embossed on Chocolate Chip Cardstock. The card base is  a 4 1/4″ x 11″ piece of Kraft cardstock, folded in half. A 3 1/2″ x 4 1/4″ piece of Natural White Neenah was embossed with Tim Holtz Checkerboard Embossing folder, layered with a Cherry Cobbler cardstock strip that was cut with Jumbo Scallop Borderabilities.

To add just a little something something, I covered the round sign completely with Glossy Accents. I also added Glossy Accent to the Raspberries, but for those I dabbed it on to create a more bumpy texture.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!
Hugs and smiles
