Flourishes Friday–Thanks a Bunch

Hi all, it’s time again for Flourishes Friday and I have another card using the FABULOUS Zinnias set. I decided to go more CAS with this one but I still wanted to color up those blooms. I’m CASEing myself with this card—I made a card similar to this one in the past using some other flowers but I’m changing this one up a bit. 


First of all I stamped the single zinnia image on Classic White card stock and Memento Tuxedo Black ink, colored them with Copic markers in the Poppy Collection, Gerber Daisy Collection, the Sunflower Collection, and the Evergreen Collection, then I cut them out. I thought these hot colors would look good on a piece of black paper but it looked a little plain so I added a strip of clear glass glitter for a little contrast. And you can’t see it in this picture, but I embossed an outline of a Labels Seventeen Nestabilities die on the Classic White. Finally, I stamped the sentiment and popped it all up on a black layer and then the base card using Classic White. 

Be sure to check out what the rest of the design team has for your today. And check out THIS blog candy that Christine has going on.
