Flourishes Friday Focus


This week at Flourishes we are focusing on the newly released sets.
I love them all. Each month's releases get better and better. For my first
card I used the new set called Ferns and Fiddles.. I used white embossing
powder and Versamark ink to emboss the ferns on glossy cardstock. 
I then sponged some ink over the
Check out the Flourishes Gallery for more great samples of the
Ferns and Fiddles..


For the second card I used the new set called Humming Along.
I have some really pretty hummingbirds that visit my deck each
day during my morning coffee.  They are so fast.

I colored the florals with the Copics Collections available at
Flourishes.  I added some highlights with Prisma Pencils.  This
wonderful cotton linen ribbon is also available at Flourishes.  This
ribbon is so nice when making bows.  
Check out many more great examples of how 
to use this set in the Flourishes Gallery...Humming Along
They are amazing.....

Check out what the rest of the team came up with:
