That's right! The Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge is turning 100! And to celebrate, we're having a blog hop challenge. In case you didn't see it, the challenge was posted as usual on Tuesday, but the DT is adding their cards and joining in the hop today! There are prizes to be won so be sure and check out the details here on the Flourishes blog. You have until midnight tonight, Friday, January 14th to enter your card in the hop. So let's get stampin'!
And here's my card. The challenge is All About Favorites! Use your choice of one or all of your favorite stamps, papers, colors, technique, and embellishments! Just list in your write up the favorites you chose to use in your card or project.
Well, there's no way I could add *all* my favorites but I tried to pack as many on this card as possible :) Let's see, some of my favorite things for card making are twill and twine, buttons and bows, stitching and sponging, flowers and flat backed pearls, coloring and sentiments, masking and matting. And all of these are on this card.
I masked the images from the From the Garden stamp set on Flourishes Classic White paper and colored them with Copic markers and Prismacolor pencils. Then I cut it out with a Petite Oval Nestabilities die, sponged the edges with Antique Linen Distress Ink (temporarily out of stock), and matted it. The sentiment was stamped on more Classic White, punched out and backed with another punch-out from patterned paper. The patterned paper I'm using is my new fave: Curio by Basic Grey. Base card is Flourishes Classic Ivory card stock. I finished it off with some flat back pearls and the popped up sentiment, also from the set.
And here are the Copics I used - yeah, I used a ton of 'em!
Thanks SO much for stopping by! I hope you'll head on over to the Flourishes blog and enter the hop with us!
