Flourishes Timeless Tuesday!!!

Hey you all - how was your weekend???

Ours went by way toooo fast, but it was fun!!! We hung out at the pool and enjoyed the hot temperatures here in GA!!!

It's time - are you ready to find out what the Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge is all about??? I'm happy to tell you that it's my turn to host the FTTC28 today and I'm challenging you to - SCORE IT!!!

Please use any scoring tool to create a scored detailing on your card. If you do not have any neat scoring device, no fear, scoring can be done with the groove of a trimmer and a bone folder or stylus. Your designs can be very intricate to classically simple. I love scoring my cards and I can't wait to see what you will create!?! I'll be checking you all out :)!!!

Here is my take on it......






















I took my Orchid Opulence CS and scored it in 1/2" increments - horizontal and vertical!!!

Here is a little trick I've been using.....since the Cardstock usually bends when you score it....I started supporting the background with an extra CS behind it...!!! I really like the supported outcome much better!!!

My main image is from the Flourishes *I love Roses* Set. I inked it with Memento Black and colored it with the Copic Violet Collection!!!

Thank you so much for stopping by....and I hope you will get a chance to play along!?!?!
