Petals & Peace - Flourishes' November Sneak Peek!



Welcome to Flourishes' November sneaks! Today's set is another one of Marcella Hawley's gorgeous botanicals. Simply stunning, as always!



This set was designed to work with a Tailor-made Spellbinders die set called Classic Keyhole Template Die. They work wonderfully together, don't you think? I stamped the image on Classic White card stock and colored it with these Copic collections:





Then I cut it out with my Grand Calibur and my Classic Keyhole Template Die. I stamped the sentiment on some vellum with Versafine ink and dried it with my heat tool, then cut it out with the Word Window die. I used vellum because I didn't want to totally cover up those gorgeous bells and greenery. Then I popped it up on some bits of foam and hid the foam with red pearls, but not before I tied on some of my favorite pink plaid ribon.

Be sure to check out the inspiration provided by the rest of the Flourishes Senior Design Team and a few of the Timeless Tuesday Challenge Team members. Remember, one of us is today's
