It is time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge(FTTC40)! This week Kimberly Crawford is our challenge host! Kimberly is challenging us to a limited supplies challenge! Our challenge is to combine a colored image, texture or textures, and any shades of neutrals we want. You can pack on the layers and textures just make sure you include an image to color and use only neutral cardstock. Just so you know you can us any combination of whites, creams, blacks, browns, and grays! So make your cards pop with texture and a beautifully colored image! We cannot wait to see what you create!

Let's see what Kimberly Crawford created with the limited challenge! She is using Flourishes Falling Leaves stamp set. Kimberly chose to use only kraft cardstock as her main color and some classic white cardstock for her leaves which she colored with Flourishes Copic Color Collection and cut out and arranged around the sentiment panel. To create the wonderful texture background, Kimberly is using the Spellbinders Flourish impressabilities which she went over with a versamark pad to create some depth of color. She finished her beautiful fall card using some May Arts burlap twine. Beautifully done, Kim!

Great idea for a challenge, Kimberly. I used original artwork for the image, instead of a stamped design: hope that's ok.
