FTTC181, CQC149 With Gratitude....

Happy Tuesday!

Guess what...I'm excited to join the Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Team ~ FTTC181 along with some of the other Senior Design Team Members to show off a set that has been a favorite this past year, but has not been available to the public until NOW!!! 



It's called.....With Gratitude!!! Cone Flower and Bell Flower -- two beauties perfect for sending a note of gratitude. This set was released as an exclusive set for FLIP members and is now availble to the public. Before you had to be a FLIP member to get your hands on it, but now, you can buy it...YEAH!!!! Illustrated beautifully by Marcella Hawley, this set measures 4 by 6" and offers not only 2 beautiful focal flowers but 6 sentiments and a script border. The stamp set is available right now as a pre-order HERE. It’s a beauty!

The Timeless Tuesday Challenge ~ FTTC181 this week is... a Sketch...check it out!!! My color inspiration came from this weeks Color Q #149.




Here is my take on it....



I started out by inking the image from the With Gratitude Set in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored it with these Copic Markers ~ YG11, G24, Y00, Y02, Y08, Y21, Y35 and Colorless Blender. Next I added some *scoring* to the second layer of Flourishes Classic White CS. The Design Paper is from the Authentique Genuine Collection. To finish it all off I added some fabulous May Arts Ribbon along with some Kaiser Pearls

Of course we can’t wait to see your take on this fun filled sketch! Need a little inspiration? Just hop on over and see what these fellow designers whipped up using the new With Gratitude Set and this Sketch!
