IC160 Thank You....


I just love, love, love the Saturday Inspiration Challenge!!! Stef always knows how to make me happy - LOL!!!

I was stalking Stef again tonight......and look what she or should I say the wonderful Mrs. Anne Ryan suggested - take a look right here - IC160.

I chose this fun *Garden Cottage Armchair* - don't ya just love those colors....??? Well I did and my MOJO was going straight into my stamp room!!! Talking about MOJO....I used Julee Tilman's fun Sketch#66 for my card.

All the flourishes on the Armchair gave me a *Springy* feeling....with our warm temperatures down here in the South no wonder!!!! I chose to the *Upsy Daisy* Set and the fab new *Raspberry Tart* DP from SU (it will be featured in the new Catalog - wahoooo)!!!

I used Rose Red and Kiwi Kiss Ink. Okay, here is how I did it.....I inked the whole image with Kiwi Kiss first. Then I took a wipe and removed the KK from the flower petals I carefully used a Rose Red *Stampin' Spot* and inked the flower petals . I also used a Rose Red Marker to cover the areas I couldn't reach. I just hope one day SU will come out with the matching Markers for the *In-Colors* - it would be sooo much easier - don't you agree??

The sentiment was inked in *Craft* Basic Black and embossed with Clear EP. I think this makes the sentiment pop a bit more too. I can't forget to mention the beautiful Kiwi Kiss Ribbon and the punched out *butterfly* from MS!!! I bedazzled the flowers at the end with the DD Glitter from SU.

Hope you like it??? ~TFL~

Now here is another fun challenge you can play along:

We've hit the end of the road for the *Festive Flourishes Friday* and this one is *New To YOU*!!! Help us usher in the New Year with either a card to celebrate 2009 or celebrate something new that you just got your hands on! If you use new goodies, be sure to tell us which product/tool you used for your creation. Link your card with a comment on this post or upload your card to SCS using the keyword *FFFC4*. Of course, we'd love it if you added the *FLLC* keyword too so that your work will show up in the SCS Flourishes gallery! Remember, you can join our challenge at any time and, if you make up past challenges and complete all four - your name will be thrown into the hat for a free stamp set of your choice! Next week the Friends of Flourishes team will reveal their *New To You* cards and we'll also pick the winner of our drawing. So get those entries in before Thursday at 11:59 PM! Thanks for playing and...HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

Silke, the card is wonderful!!!! Love the sneak peak at the "new" raspberry dp, too. Great glitz and coloring!!!!

Dawn Easton said...

Gorgeous Silke! Love those colours together, will make note of them now...thanks for the inspiration!
I hope SU comes out with markers too. In the meantime, I use something that Beate sent me awhile back, some of those Fantastix. I ink them up with in-colour re-inkers and colour just like a marker.
Have a fab weekend!

Oh my, this card is absolutely lovely! I love the butterfly and the little pearls on his back. I like how you colored the stems differently than the flowers.
