FTTC95 - Guest Designing 64

Mona Pendleton | Monday, November 29, 2010 @ 10:01 PM | , ,

Hi there! It is time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge (FTTC95)! It is the last Tuesday of the month so that means Flourishes invites one lucky person to host the challenge - well that would be me! Yahoooo! I am so thrilled and honored to join this awesome talented design team for this challenge! Thanks so much Betty for inviting me! I chose to challenge everyone to create a project focusing on doilies. You can use actual doilies or create your own with punches or die cuts. The object is to have a doily look! Along with the Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge DT, I look forward to seeing what you create!

I used a beautiful image from Flourishes Gerber Daisies:
I inked up the smaller bouquet of Gerber Daises with Memento Tuxedo Black ink using the Copic markers shown below, colored the image then cut/embossed using a S4-112 Classic Ovals SM die template, layered upon another oval cut/embossed using a S4-110 Classic Ovals LG.
Using some distressing ink, I rubbed the edges of a white paper doily then adhered the pretty bouquet right smack in the center! What do you think?
Can't go wrong with a pretty butterfly right? Using the butterfly template from S4-123 Flying Beauties die templates collection to cut/emboss a lil' butterfly. For added texture, I embossed the butterfly and used two layers.
For COMPLETE challenge details, please visit the Flourishes Blog HERE and for amazing inspiration, please be sure to visit all gals on the Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge DT: Betty, Cindy H., Dee, Silke, Maki, and Barbara.

Supplies Used:
Stamps: Flourishes Gerber Daisies
Die Templates & Machine: Spellbinders™ Nestabilities® S4-112 Classic Ovals SM, S4-110 Classic Ovals LG, S4-123 Flying Beauties, GC-001 Grand Calibur
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Copic Markers
