Flourishes Timeless Tuesday!!!

Hey everyone!!!

It's Tuesday again and you all know what that means :)?!? Yep - it's time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday!!!

Our host today is Betty Wright and she has challenged us with an Inspiration site - Kimberly Poloson art on Allposters.com.

I was inspired by this Tuscan Fruit poster. What better way to show off the newly released Flourishes Set - Life, Love and Lemons!!!

I inked the lemon image in Memento Black and colored it with Copic and Prisma Markers - G07, E47, N1 and PM-21.

The Brown Dotted DP is from PTI. The Yellow CS is some unkown leftovers.

I hope you all check out the fabulous site that Betty found for us and get inspired to play along??? Please download your creations under *FTTC20* and please add the link (poster) that inspired you so we all can see it!!!

Don't forget to swing by the Flourishes Blog for all the Samples and find out who won last weeks prize!?!

******************************

I was still in the coloring mood and created another card with the same Set.


I kept this card in all white with a fresh splash of colors.

I changed the sentiment and added the some scoring. Plus I used a different green on the leaves. I exchanced it to a Prisma Color - PM-165 Grass Green.

Hope you like this version too :) ?!?

Please visit - Betty, Cindy, Connie, Dee and Kimberly for their take on the Inspiration Challenge.

So much to enjoy on your blog ... as usual! Just wanted to pop by and say hi and let everyone know what a VERY SPECIAL person you are! Thank you for your amazing kindness! I am so touched by how generous you are! (For any readers: I had asked Silke where she purchased the silver pearls that she uses on her cards and she let me know it was Michaels. We don't have "Michaels" in Australia ... so she very kindly bought some for me ... and then refused to take any payment!!! I am just blown away that she would do that for a total stranger who lives half way around the world!) Thank you so much, Silke! I am really very grateful! Big Hugs, Andrea xxx
