Flourishes thurs cx


Well blogger was being uncooperative on thursday but I can always backpost right!!! :)

Thursday was a good day , a bit busy , up early to get DS to an off school site test and then was at the car dealer first thing to get a side mirror fixed only to find they painted it the wrong I went and got groceries instead. Then I headed over to hang out with my local stamping buddies and play for a bit - I just brought some things to color (we often do more talking than stamping :).

This weekend is my Chief Enablers Birthday - Happy Birthday Pat!!! So we celebrated at our stamp group day - (she's not only my Chief Enabler - she enables most of the group because she teaching stamping classes at the local learning center...).

Around lunch time I had to run and puick up DS and a small group of his friends and I ran they out to the beach - ran back to get them later in the afternoon.

OK on to todays card - I did this card for thursdays challenge with Flourishes release week. The main image is from FLourishes - colored with prismacolor pencils. I colored it at stamp group and then finished later in the afternoon.....

Thursdays challenge was a sketch . I also used a background stamp from Flourishes on all 3 panels. I inked it with versamark and then antique linnen ink for the main panel , versamark and tea dye ink for the back panels and embossed them with clear powder.

The embossing is hard to see on the main panel but looks really neat IRL - kinda like a subtle flocking kinda thing.....

The ribbon is also from Flourishes - I love this ribbon, have used up my stash and bought more a couple times now.

Check out all the release challenges here -

All for me today - Take Care
