Flourishes Pre-Release Challenge–B & W + 1


Welcome to Flourishes’ February Pre-Release Challenge! This month’s challenge is one I love: Black and White and another color. Fun and so much scope for creativity!

The Black and White Plus One Challenge_edited-1

Get all the details at the Flourishes blog.

I usually go with red when I do black and white but I pulled out my Hearts and Flowers set that had never been inked up and decided to use the sweet daisy heart. I stamped it on Classic White card stock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored it with Copic markers, using these Copic collections:



Then I cut it out and popped it up on foam dots on top of several designs of patterned paper and a Labels Eighteen Nestabilities die cut. I tied some matching yellow ribbon around in a bow and then added a flag, using a die from the Nested Pennants set.

So, that's it for me. Be sure to take a look at what the rest of the design team has for you.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
