The new Flourishes set Lenten Rose is so beautiful! I had to use it when I saw the color challenge on Splitcoast this week: Regal Rose, So Saffron,  Pear Pizzaz.  I combined with the Flourishes Timeless Tuesday challenge, which was to use Masking on your card.

I started out by stamping the bigger image of that set twice in opposite corners of a 4″ x 5 1/4″ piece of Neenah Solar White cardstock with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. I cut out the inner leaves and petals with a hobby knife so I could use the Out of the Box technique with a Petite Oval Nestabilities die.

The flowers were colored with Copic Markers (R20, R21, R43, R46, YG03, YG25, YG67, E97, E99, E09, E18, 1/5th YR31, YR31), then masked with Eclipse Tape. The blank spots on the paper were stamped with a sentiment from Butterflies & Blossoms in Scattered Straw Distress ink. Then the edges of the paper were first sponged in Scattered Straw, then just a hint of Vintage Photo.

A piece of Really Rust cardstock was cut with the next smaller Oval die and the edges were colored with Copic Marker E09 to match the flowers. A sentiment from Flourishes Life Lines was stamped in Rich Cocoa Memento Ink on a piece of Neenah Solar White cardstock. It was sponged with Scattered Straw ink and adhered behind the oval window. The edges of the inner oval were paper pierced.

The layers were stitched to a 3/16″ bigger piece of Solar White cardstock before all the layers were adhered to a 5 3/4″ x 9″ piece of Really Rust cardstock folded in half. Again the outer edges of the card front had been colored with Copic Marker E09 to match the flower centers.

To finish off the card parts of a Zva Creative Rhinestone swirl were adhered around the outer edges of the oval window. Thank you so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day.
