Flourishes Timeless Tuesday - FTTC59!!!

Happy Tuesday!!!

Today we have another fun Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge - FTTC59 waiting for you!!! This week Betty Wright is our host. Betty is challenging us to *FAKE IT*!!! We are using FAUX TECHNIQUES on our cards and projects. There are a list of many amazing faux ideas over at SCS site. Check them out HERE. So, create something faux fabulous with us this week. We would love to see what you create!!!

Here is one of my favorite techniques *Faux Stitching* !!!!



My inspiration to used the gorgeous Sign of Spring Set came from this weeks CAS59 - New York, New York. I chose this Daffodil  image from the Sun Market Photo. The sentiment is from the Tag Lines Set. The flower was inked in Memento Black and colored with these Copic Marker Collections - Buttercup, Daffodil, Meadow plus a Colorless Blender. The DP is from the BasicGrey Nook & Pantry Collection which is also available at the Flourishes Store. I finished the card off with a Black Button, some Yellow Scrap Floss and some Dazzling Diamond Glitter.

Hope you liked this idea ??? Please swing by my fab Team Members for more inspiration - Barbara, Betty, CindyDee and Maki

Have a wonderful day and check back later......I'll have another card for you :) !!!

Your faux stitching is wonderful, Silke! So much easier to change marker colors than changing the thread in the sewing machine. I just put the white in there and leave it! Beautiful card!
