I couldn’t wait to play with my new set Fucshia in Bloom. I thought it was perfect for the Flourishes Timeless Tuesday challenge. This time it was a color challenge: Kraft, Black, hot pink and light yellow. I stamped the image in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on Neenah Solar White cardstock and colored it with Copic Markers (RV10, RV11, RV14 and YR31 Flower heads, YG91, YG93 leaves, picked those colors to keep close to the Kraft color). The image was cut with Petite Oval Nestabilities and airbrushedwith Copic Marker YR31.


The card base was cut out of black cardstock with Curved Rectangle Nestabilities. Next is a piece of Kraft cardstock cut  and embossed with the next size smaller die. A thin strip of Cherry Hill October Afternoon Paperwas cut with the same die and layered on the left side of the Kraft die cut, after a white piece of cardstock cut and embossed with Kaleidoscope Borderabilities was layered underneath the patterned paper. White linen ribbon was tied around it, topped with a Basic Grey button that was tied on with black waxed Linen.

The main image was adhered on a piece of black cardstock cut with Label 10 Nestabilities. The layers were attached to the card front with dimensionals. The sentiment is from the same set, stamped with Tuxedo black Memento Ink on Neenah Solar White cardstock and cut with Petite Oval Nestabilities. The oval was airbrushed with YG93. Pearl Kaisercraft Pearls finished off the card front.


The inside of the card was kept pretty simple. Just another Kraft piece of cardstock cut with Curved Rectangle Nestabilities and layered with a strip of Cherry Hill cardstock. The border stamp from the Fucshia set was stamped over both layers with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.

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