Flourishes Timeless Tuesday

“It is time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge (FTTC31)!
This week Kimberly Crawford is our host. Kimberly is challenging us to go without coloring. You can use solid images or use a technique to showcase outline stamps in a non-colored way. There are many techniques from paper piecing, embossing, glittering, or heat embossing to name a few. Whichever you decide, would love to see what you create!”

Check out the rest of the team:

  • Betty Wright
  • Cindy Haffner
  • Dee Jackson
  • Silke Ledlow
  • Cherish our Friendship no coloring

    The inspiration for this challenge came from my card, here. I wanted to use the peaches image, but didn’t have the correct Copics to color. But I did have the correct color inks, so I did the letter press technique and it was SO cool! Today, I brought color to this image in two different ways, the berries are glittered, and the leaves are pieced from stamping onto patterned paper.

    Cherish our Friendship no coloring CU

    Because I was staying true to the challenge, I did not color before adhering the glitter to the cherries. Anytime I add glitter or Fun Flock, I add color with ink, paint, markers, or whatever will coordinate first, to make sure and get a completely colored image. Two more things to point out, the twine on the bottom was given color with a Copic marker. (love the ability to make white twine any color I need) And the second thing is, the background was airbrushed with a pale yellow (Y11) and then I sponged chalk ink around the outsides to shabby it up a bit.

    Happy September! thanks for stopping by! :)
