It’s release week at Flourishes. Today’s sneak peek set is a gorgeous new flower set from Marcella Hawley. The image is so much fun to color. It’s practically screams summer and begs for fun, bright colors.

I stamped the big image in  Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on white cardstock. The image was cut with the smallest of the Grand Oval Nestabilities die and colored with Copic Markers (B60, B63, B66, YG21, YG25, YG17, C00, C3). The edges were sponged with Tumbled Glass Distress ink and the oval was adhered to a piece of black cardstock that was hand cut into a slightly bigger layer.

A sentiment from the set was stamped on white cardstock that had been cut and embossed with one of the Tailor-Made Classic Tag dies. The center had been sponged with Tumbled ink. The tag was tied to a Sheer Ribbon bow and adhered to the lower left of the image. Part of a Silver Finesse Rhinestone swirl was adhered on the tag as well as on the upper right of the image.

The layers were adhered to the card base, white cardstock, cut and embossed with the second smallest of the Grand Decorative Oval Nestabilities die.
