Hey there!! Here with a card for the current Flourishes challenge. I haven't done a Flourishes challenge is ages, but that is all going to change! I'm determined to participate in the weekly Timeless Tuesday challenge on a more regular basis! This week the challenge hostess is the super talented Maki Jones and she has challenged us to have a bird somewhere on your project. The only Flourishes set I have that contains a bird image is "Humming Along" so I pulled it out and got to work.
The layout for the card is from this week's Sketchbook Saturday sketch. I did have to tweak it a bit... moving the image from one side of the card to the other to accommodate the little hummingbird. I wasn't too sure if the card was going to turn out the way I hoped it would and so I was pleasantly surprised that when I got it done that it did!! Yay!!! The woodgrain image is from WPlus9Designs Woodgrain Silhouettes set. I stamped it using Memento Angel Pink and then stamped the floral image on top using Tuxedo Black. The image was colored with Copic markers (YG03, YG06, R81 & R83). The bird was colored with W1, W3 & B00. He was then trimmed out and some Old Paper Distress ink was applied. I inked the edges of the main panel as well and then I adhered the little bird with pop dots. The sentiment is from the Flourishes Gerbera Daisies set. Because I used a friendship sentiment and flowers on the card I will also be popping this into this week's Our Creative Corner challenge to make a card for a friend.
