Unembellished Tigerlily - FTTC 78

It is time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge (FTTC78)! This week Dee Jackson is our host. Dee is challenging us to a limited supplies challenge. The limit? NO Embellishments. What does this mean? It means that we let the image we use speak for itself. We CAN use ink, stamps, paper, punches, die cuts, and coloring tools. We cannot add rhinestones, Prima flowers, buttons, pearls, ribbons, brads, etc. We would love to see what you create with this limited supplies challenge.

Hmmmm, this is a tough one for me. You know I love me some ribbon, buttons, bling--any of it and sometimes all of it, LOL! But Dee says no embellishments today so this is what I've come up with. This is the July flower from from Flourishes A Year In Flowers series, Set 2. I used a CAS layout, but I've got layers. I embossed the white base layer with the Textiles embossing folder and the rest was just a matter of layering. I stamped the image on Flourishes Classic White card stock and colored with Copic markers, then popped up on foam squares. The sentiment was punched out and popped up, as well. Simple, but those flowers are so gorgeous they really don't need any embellishment, do they? Be sure to go see how my team mates are going embellishment-free today! I hope you'll play along with us! ~Supplies~
