Flourishes Timeless Tuesday!
Hello friends! I'm so excited to share the news that I am guest designing for Flourishes' Timeless Tuesday Challenges for the month of March! This week's challenge is Embossed Corrugate - Use Real or Faux Corrugate on your project.
It's been "really cold" in Florida this week, which doesn't happen all that often (and yes, I know, "really cold" is relative!)...when the cold weather comes (even though the flowers are blooming and it's nearly Easter), it puts me in the mood to make wintry cards. This one is a nearly monochromatic Christmas card, with the exception of some soft, coral-red holly berries. The image was stamped with Memento ink, colored with Copic markers, and framed with a soft sponging of distress ink.
The corrugated paper was more kraft-colored than my designer paper, so I inked its ridges with Memento ink, then finger-painted it with ivory acrylic paint and spritzed it with some pewter shimmer spray to help it harmonize with the other colors. That gave it the Winter White look I was hoping for.
Visit the Flourishes blog for more inspiration and details regarding the challenge.
