Timeless Tuesday #220 - Blues and Greens


Welcome to my first post with Flourishes for the Timeless Tuesday Challenge! This week Broni is our hostess, and her challenge is all about using Green and Blue! Easy enough for a challenge, so grab some green and blue paper and a Flourishes set and play along! You can find all the details of the challenge on the Flourishes Blog!

Check out what the team came up with for
FTTC#220 Blue and Green Challenge:


I was in the mood to color some flowers, so I found a set that would work with the challenge colors of blue and green....the very pretty Sweet Violets stamp set. I used the out of the box technique with the violets using a circle die. The white layer behind the image and the sentiment die both come in the Perfectly Pierced Classic Window Die Set. I love using piercing on a card and when the die does it for you, well I love it even more!  I hand cut additional small layers around most of the die cut pieces. 

Here are the Copics I used for the image. Flourishes does a fantastic job of grouping Copics together to make it easy to pick out some really great combinations. They have created a swatch book that has all sorts of great color combo suggestions. I used the greens from the Pistachio Collection, these have to be some of my most used greens, I just love the tone.


Here is an upclose. Of course I managed to work a bow in there!
