Hi, all you Flourishes fans! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! We finally had a weekend that wasn't full of rain and for that, I'm grateful!
It's time for our latest edition of the Timeless Tuesday challenge!
Deborah is our hostess this week and here's her challenge:
In Distress - Add a distressed look to your card or project.
This is always a fun technique to use! You can actually be a little messy on purpose!
I'm using one of the fabulous new August sets today - Chrysanthemum. What gorgeous images and beautiful sentiments to use along with the Mums!
I used my Silhouette to cut the single mum from Flourishes Classic White cardstock and then stamped it with Memento Gray Flannel ink. Then I colored it using the Poppy Copic collection along with the R01 and R02 markers as well.
The white background layer and the Perfectly Pierced Classic Frames die cut were both spritzed with a mixture of crisp cantalope reinker and water. I stitched two of the layers together, and distressed the edges of the top stitched layer and the white spritzed layer. I also sponged some of the gray along the edges of the white layer.
I stamped the sentiment in Gray Flannel ink onto one of the flags and added a pearl self-adhesive border to the other.
