Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge(FTTC21)!!!

It is time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge(FTTC21)!!!! Thanks so much to all of you who participated in last week's inspiration challenge. Keep reading to find out who won!

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 Silke Ledlow is hosting. Silke is challenging us to a sketch she has designed.

As far as sketches go, there is not much explanation necessary. You can turn it and enlarge the sections to fit your card size. However, in the end, it should still look like the sketch. Good Luck!!!! Looking forward to seeing what you create with it!!!

Let's go see what the blog design team created using this sketch!!!

Up first this week is our challenge host, Silke Ledlow . Silke is using the Sweet Peas and Many Sentiments stamp sets. Silke is using the newly released Flourishes Copic Color Collections. She colored the sweet peas using the Hollyhock and Fields color collections. Wonderful coloring, Silke. Love the beautiful shades of pinks and greens with the warm golden dp frame detailing. Beautifully done, Silke!!!

Next, is Betty Wright. I am using the Nasturtiums stamp set. I used the large image to create a background. I stamped one of the smaller images along with the sentiment to create my framed focal piece. I am using the newly released Flourishes Copic Color Collections. I colored my background and focal images with the Tiger Lily, Dusty Rose, Poppy, and Spring Greens collections. I used the Cool Neutral collection to create shadow.

Cindy Haffner is next. Cindy is using the newly released Life, Love and Lemons stamp set. I love how Cindy is using the sentiment as the focal image and one of the slices as an accent. The layered inverted square Spellbinders is a terrific look to the framed spellbinders card framing. Great colors and sparkly dp choice!! Wonderful detailing, patterns, and design, Cindy!!!

Next up this week is Connie McCotter. Connie is using the Summer on the Patio set. This is a wonderful set with so many images to create lovely summer patio scenes. Connie is using some some beautiful basicgray wisteria designer paper to accent the image scene for her card card. I love these colors and patterns. She added some ribbon and hardware detailing. She finished with pearl accents. Lovely card, Connie!!!

Up next is Dee Jackson. Dee is using the newly released Waterlilies set. Dee is also using some of the newly released Flourishes Classic White and Classic Ivory cardstocks. You have to get a pack of each and just try it for yourself. This cardstock is fabulous and wonderful with copics. Speaking of copics!!! Dee is also using the newly released Flourishes Copic Color Collections. She is using the Tea Rose, Dusty Rose, Hollyhock, and Fields color collections. Beautifully colored, Dee!!! Gorgeous card!!!

Last this week is Kimberly Crawford. Kimberly is using one of the newly released sets called Patriotism on Parade. Wonderful coloring and cut work detailing, Kim. I love the wrapped twine detailing. Wonderful Patriotic card!!! Please check out the Designing for a Cause Challenge to see how you can help with the Wounded Warrior Project and Cards for Heroes.
