Heavy Metal - Flourishes Pre-Release Challenge

Are you ready for Flourishes' Pre-Release Challenge! Yep, that's right, Flourishes' October release is just around the corner, and I'll give you a little hint--you're gonna be WOWed with what we've got to show you this month!



This month's Pre-Release Challenge is all about precious metals. Silver, gold, copper or bronze, whichever metal you pick, just make it take center stage on your card or creation! FLLCOCT11. Deadline is October 14th at 5 PM Eastern.



Since I'm in an Autumn frame of mind, I chose to use the Falling Leaves stamp set for my card. I positioned a selection of leaves on my card stock the way I wanted them, then carefully lowered my acrylic block on top of the stamps so I'd preserve my placement. Then I inked up the stamps with Versamark, stamped, and heat embossed with fine detail copper embossing powder. Then I stamped the sentiment and added the green flat back pearls--I just colored some white pearls with a Copic marker--for balance. I'm using this copper metallic paper and the border was cut with my Grand Calibur and my Classic Scallop Edgeabilities. I'm using THIS ribbon.

Be sure to check out what the rest of the design team has for you today!
