Flourishes Timeless Tuesday

“It's Tuesday which means it's time for another Timeless Tuesday challenge (FTTC27). This week, your DH might even get excited about the challenge because it's all about hardware! And, when we say hardware we mean metal of any kind. So, let's see how creative you can get - frames, eyelets, paperclips, staples, brads - you name it! If it is metal, it works!”

Check out the rest of the team:

  • Betty Wright
  • Cindy Haffner
  • Dee Jackson
  • Silke Ledlow
  • Copper Hope

    Here is my take on the challenge. Isn’t that background the coolest? Read on to learn how to create the look. One thing I did want to point out was the background of the cardstock, it is stamped, but it didn’t photograph well. The background is stamped with the butterfly from Butterfly Moments.

    Copper Hope Supplies

    To create the copper background, I used Royal Engraving Art Board in Copper. I ran the Butterflies Impressabilities and the board through my Wizard. Then, I sanded the black surface off the board and the copper finish comes through. (you should see the new Impressabilities with this stuff-wowee!)
