Happy Flourishes Timeless Tuesday!!!
It is time for a new Challenge - FTTC68 !!! Since it's the end of the month we are introducing you to our monthly Guest Designer!!! It is the fabulous and super sweet Velta Wesson.
Velta is challenging us to "MAKE YOUR OWN FLOWERS" !!! I know you have seen all of these wonderful dimensional homemade flowers and today is your chance to make one too! They look fabulous on any project and they are not hard to do!!! Check out the Flourishes Blog for an awesome flower tutorial made by our very own Dawn Burnsworth or stop by SCS for some more flower ideas!!! Whichever form of flower you choose to create, we would love to have you play along with us!!!
Here is my flower idea :) .......
The wonderful quote I used today is from the new Cherry Blossom Set and it was inked in Memento Black. The Design Paper for the flowers are from the BasicGrey Nook & Pantry Collection. The flower die is from the Beautiful Blooms II Collection.. The Groovy Guava BG was embossed with the Sunshine Impression Plate and the Lable One BG was scored.
The idea to make this a more *vintage* looking card came from this weeks SSCC40 Challenge. I ink distressed the entire card with the Vintage Touch Ink. The flowers were roughed up with a Stylus and I crunched them together pretty good. I used some Large Silver Brads in the center of the flowers. The leaves are from some leftover fake flowers. I trimmed them and glued them to the back of the flowers. At last I added some Silver Pearls in the corners to finish off the card.
Please stop by Barbara, Betty, Cindy, Dee, Maki and Velta for some more gorgeous flower cards!!!
