Hi, all! Today is the first day of sneak peeks for Flourishes' October release. Today the Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge team is heading up the parade and the challenge is to create an ornament or use one on your card or creation. Head on over to the Flourishes blog to get all the details. How's this for a little incentive: the winner of this challenge wins the entire October release! That's FOUR sets!!!
And here's my card using Holiday Sparkle. This set is SO right up my alley! I am just thrilled with it!
I knew I wanted to go kinda CAS to really showcase this gorgeous image. So, first of all, I stamped it on Classic White card stock with Versamark and heat embossed with silver fine detail embossing powder. Then I made the snow cap with Liquid Applique. the next thing I did was cover everything below the snow cap with Crystal Effects. When that was pretty dry, I quickly waved my heat tool over it to warm it up a little, sprinkled on some iridescent embossing powder and knocked off all I could. I let that set and then cut it out. I couldn't quite catch the gorgeous shimmer with my camera but it really shows up in real life. After I finished the ornament, I stamped the evergreen branch with green ink and added some brown stem with Copic markers. To finish up, I stamped the sentiment nestled in the branches, stamped the ornament hook, and popped the ornament up on foam.
Now, you must go see what all the designers have for you:
Thanks so much for stopping by today! I'll be back tomorrow with another Flourishes Sneak Peek!
