Flourishes Friday Blog Hop–Use Pastels

It’s my week to host our Flourishes l.c. Friday Blog Hop! I decided to challenge the girls to make their card using only pastels except for stamped lines and sentiments which can be a neutral colour. I’m excited to see what the girls have made!

I used the Year of Flowers 2 poppy image for my card. I coloured it very softly with Copic Markers on Flourishes white cardstock.The focal image was cut with a Spellbinders die. The background piece was cut with Simon Say Stamp dies (I cheated and used a rectangle die with stitching along the outer edge as a border stitching die on the left) as was the sentiment (also SSS)which was popped up on fun foam. A scattering of sequins from Lucy’s Little Things and some messy gold thread complete this soft and feminine card. The background papers are by My Mind’s Eye.

Isn’t this stamp set gorgeous? It’s perfect for so many occasions! Now it’s time to hop along! I’m sure you’ll be thrilled with the amazing cards the team has created!
