It’s time for a new Flourishes release and if you’ve seen what’s been showing up on the Flourishes blog already this week you know you’re in for a treat! First the FLIP program, and yesterday Wild For Watermelon, today we have a gorgeous new set by Marcella Hawley called Hollyhocks. Another in her simply fabulous line of botanical images.
I love to use these larger images for the spotlighting technique, so that’s what I did with my card today.
First of all, I stamped the image on Classic White card stock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, then I stamped the part I intended to spotlight again, colored it with the Lenten Rose Collection and Evergreen Collection Copic markers, and cut it out with a Standard Circle Nestabilities die and my Grand Calibur machine. The main image was cut with my Curved Rectangle Nestabilities.
I used a simple layout and jazzed it up a bit with some bling, ribbon, and some gorgeous paper. I love the contrasts: the spotlighting for sure, and the bling and gingham.
Since there’s no sentiment on the outside, I stamped the image off to the side and added it on the inside. Sweet.
