A Year In Flowers, Cyclamen - FTTC #95


It's time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge (FTTC95)! It's the last Tuesday of the month so we have us a challenge host! Mona Pendleton is our challenge host this month! Thanks so much Mona! Mona is challenging us to doilies! You can use actual doilies or create your own with punches or die cuts. The object is to have a doily look! We look forward to seeing what you create!

Mmmm, I love doilies, so this was a fun challenge for me! And I decided if I was going to get the November flower from A Year In Flowers done I'd better do it soon since November is almost over! I stamped the Cyclamen image from Set #3 on Classic White card stock and colored it with Copic markers, then I cut it out with a Classic Circle Nestabilities die and sponged the edges with Antique Linen Distress ink. The patterned paper I'm using is from Basic Grey's new Curio 6 x 6 pad. My doily is one I picked up a Michaels in the cake decorating section. It's really a stark white, so I sponged it pretty heavily with the distress ink, too, to make it blend with the gorgeous paper. A little matching twill ribbon and some Dew Drops and it was done! I left off a sentiment so this could be used for any number of occasions.

Here are the Copic colors I used:

Now, be sure to go see what my team mates did with this challenge!
