Flourishes September Sneak Peeks, Day One



Welcome to day one of Flourishes September Sneak Peeks! As always, we have some fabulous sets for you this month, starting with Feminine Charm.


I love this image 'cause I'm all about shoes :) I've ALWAYS loved shoes, LOL! I stamped the image on Classic Ivory card stock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored it with Copic markers. Then I cut it out with Standard Circle Nestabilities and matted it with a Picot Edge Circle die cut. Then I popped it up on a base of some black bling, some sheer ribbon, and a border done with my Classic Triple Scallop edge dies, all using my Grand Calibur machine. Then I added a little shimmer on the shoe straps with a Copic clear Atyou Spica glitter pen. Finally I added the sentiment on a little tag.
 
Be sure to check out the inspiration provided by the rest of the Flourishes Senior Design Team and remember, one of us is today's
