Flourishes May Sneak Peek, Day Three



So, what do you think of this release? Another one out of the park, right? Yes!!! Today we have some samples from the last set of the release, On the Porch. Marcella Hawley has done it again—perfectly executed images with a nostalgic feel.

For my card, first of all I stamped the ladder back chair on Classic White card stock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored it with these Copic collections:

Evergreen Collection:
Poppy Collection:
Iced Aqua Collection:
Daffodil Collection:
Sweet Pea Collection:
Sweet Pea Collection
Copper Collection:
Spruce Collection:
Then I cut it out with my
Labels Twenty Two Nestabilities and sponged the edges with Antique Linen Distress Ink before popping it up on foam. The sentiment was stamped on more Classic White card stock, cut out with Petite Oval Nestabilities, and popped up on foam, as well. I added some white crochet lace, along with some of this ribbon, with some stitching and a paper doily under the image.

Here’s the inside with another sentiment from the set.
