FTTC52F Hosted By Maki Jones

Hello everyone, it's Maki Jones and I'm hosting the final challenge of Flourishes Timeless Tuesday One Year Anniversary Challenge (FTTC52F)!! My challenge is from FTTC10 - Use our favorite Flourishes stamp set. Many more fabulous sets were released from Flourishes after the original challenge was posted. So, I thought it would be fun to play with the challenge again :)


If you do not yet own any Flourishes stamps, you can still play! Just choose your favorite stamp set ever. You may win a prize for your first Flourishes set after all :):)





Here is my sample....
I used my favorite set, Gerbera Daisies set and stamped the image and the sentiment on the classic white cardstock with Memento tuxedo black. The same cardstock was also used for the card base. The image was colored with Copic markers from the Copic collections. The paper toile was done for a couple of the flowers. The background layer is from the designer paper is from Basic Gray Pantry & Nook. The green border was made with the border punch and the photo corners was used the photo corner punch. The ribbon and the brown pearls are used to embellish the card.






Please check out the following links to see more samples by our past FTTC challenge designers using their favorite Flourishes stamp set!

It has been a true pleasure participating in all of the Anniversary challenges. I really followed my heart when I chose my favorite set. Thanks for hosting this.

Alaine said...

Whew... I made it. I wasn't sure I would. I put it on SCS instead of my blog because I thought it might take to long (I am new to the blogiverse).

Thank you for this. It inspired me to use a stamp that I LOVE but hadn't used yet!
