Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge(FTTC31)!

It is time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge(FTTC31)!!! A big thanks to Liz William for guest hosting with us last week! Thanks so much, too, to all of you who played along with us with the pearl challenge. Keep reading to find out who won! We also have the August monthly winner listed.

Do not forget to use Mr. Linky when you play!!!

The Friends of Flourishes blog design team are bringing you exciting and different challenges each week. Everyone can PLAY and anyone can WIN! Make sure you continue reading to find out how.

This week Kimberly Crawford is our host. Kim is challenging us to no 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, glittered, or heat embossing to name a few. Whichever you decide, would love to see what you create!

Let's go see what the blog design team created with the no coloring challenge this week.

Up first this week is Kimberly Crawford. Kimberly is using the Cherries and Peaches stamp set. This is gorgeous, Kim!!! I just love the colors and patterns. For the no coloring challenge, Kim paper pieced the leaves and used some red glitter for the cherries. It makes them look mouth-watering sweet!!! Beautiful detailing and design, Kim!!!

Next up is Silke Ledlow . Silke is using the I Love Roses stamp set. Beautiful colors and piercing detailing, Silke!!! For the no coloring challenge, Silker paper pieced the leaves and the rose using different patterns to create visual interest. She also used the paper tole technique to create dimension and depth with the rose. Wonderful looking card, Silke!!!

Up next is Betty Wright. For my card, I am using Poinsettias and Boxwood set. I am using some basicgray lemonade dp. I used the paper tole technique as well. I embossed with a snowflake pattern that mimics the pinking nestabilities shaped framing. I added some gold wheat shimmerz and kaleidescope embossing powder for added sparkle. I finished with some pearls, gold cording, and a satin and sheer ribbon bow!!!

Cindy Haffner is up next. Cindy is using the Coffee with Friends and Strawberries stamp set. Wonderful colors and textures, Cindy. Cindy paper pieced the cup using some basicgray dp. She embossed the background and used the same background embossing on the cup. She finished her card with a silver cord frame and some lace with ribbon combination. Beautifully done, Cindy!!!

Please check out our individual blogs for more card details!!
