Timeless Tuesday #151


     Good Morning!  It seems that Blogging is behaving now, so I thought I would try doing my post.  It has been pouring here since dinner time last night, and I am not sure if that is what prompted this card or not.  For Christmas, Santa brought me some new Flourishes sets and I have just had time to start playing with them.  This week the Timeless Tuesday Challenge is being hosted by Tammy Hershberger, and is an inspiration photo challenge.


     I started with a base of Pumpkin Spice, Pure Luxury card stock, added a layer of Pure White, and for the third layer I used Basic Grey, Green at Heart dp. I cut and embossed a Labels Ten, Nestabilities die.  Starting with a Classic Oval Nestie, I stamped raindrops from the April Showers stamp set, using London Fog Memento ink and sponged on Ripe Persimmon Distress Ink.  I topped it with my sentiment stamped in Versafine Onyx black.

     Now, let me tell you that I finally broke down and bought the Cheery Lynn Fanciful Flourish die that I have admired time and time again, on my friend Olga's blog.  Now I see what she means.  First off it cuts like butter. I also want say that I do not remember ever having a die that you can move around, cut apart, and embellish in so many ways!  Thanks for enabling me, Olga!


     Okay, back to my card....  I next stamped the muck boots from the set and colored them with Copics.  They were then fussy cut and coated in Crystal Lacquer, and popped over my flourish.  I finished off the card with Prima flowers and gems.

     That was such fun!  Love this set!  Especially adore the sentiments.  Thanks for stopping by!
