Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge #30


It is time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge (FTTC30)! It is the last Tuesday in the month so it is my honor to be the guest challenge host this month! A string of pearls always seem to be in every woman's collection of "must have" jewelry and often the only accessory needed to complete an outfit. I thought since pearls held such an honored place in our jewelry boxes, it would be great to let them be a part of today's challenge.

Whether you want to use pearlized papers, pearlx, pearl paints, halfbacked pearls, or actual pearl beads, whatever you choose to use, we would love to see what you create.

I used the lace and trim set to stamp a partial background with pink pirouette ink, I used white cardstock for the card base and used white and pink pirouette paper with my nestabilities for layers for the main image that is the sweetpeas by Flourishes. I used copic markers to color them, added halfbacked pearls around the image, and pink and white ribbons.


Be sure to check out the other Friends of Flourishes Blog Team Designers to see what they created for you this week: Betty, Kimberly, Silke, Cindy.
