Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge: Square Cards

"It is time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge (FTTC16)!!! This week Silke Ledlow is hosting the challenge!!! It is all about shapes this week. Silke is challenging us to go square with our cards. A square has four right angles and fours sides the same length. We are stepping away from the standard A2 card and going square!!! So, go square with us this week!!! We would love to see what you create!!!"

I am in love with the new diy Topiaries stamp set from Flourishes!! So many great combinations of trees and containers. Lots of coloring fun and I am looking forward to using some Flower Soft with the trees too!

I worked really hard on coloring in the pot. I wanted it to look like terra cotta and keep the look of the round pot, you know, keep the dimension, not look flat. With a lot of color blending and a small amount of colorless blender, I am very happy with the look. Even more happy with the look of the round decorative balls, with some colorless blender, they also look dimensional. The shadowing is ok, but I like the color (BV23).
Hope you are enjoying a wonderful day! thanks for stopping by!
