Happy 4th Birthday Flourishes

Good evening all. I hope you`ve all enjoyed the bank holiday weekend.

August marks the 4th birthday of Flourishes.org and they are having a fabulous blog hop and card challenge to celebrate with wonderful prizes to give away. Now you all know how much I adore Flourishes stamps and would give my right arm (maybe not) to own more of them than I have. Well the only to stand a chance is to enter the competition, so that`s what I`ve done. Here is my entry,
I have used one of my favourite stamps from Flourishes, Gerber daisy. This time though I`ve tried a technique I haven`t done before.I`ve cut the image out using a nestie circle but I`ve left some of the flowers and the stems larger than the die. Chupa has a great tutorial on how to do this HERE.
She explains it so much better than me.
I cut a panel and used a Martha Stewart Doily border punch along both long edges and used some pale dusky green paper from Docrafts as a contrast to the image. The image is coloured with Promarkers and I`ve added a moss green bow.
The sentiment is Flourishes Tag Lines and I`ve added some flat back pearls to finish.


Thank you for popping in...Lynne xxx

  6. Just stunning - hope you win! You picked a very complex image for your first "out of the nestie" cutting too so well done - it worked so well. I beheaded my image the first time I tried it.........
