Flourishes Timeless Tuesday

Hello everyone;
I can't believe I am right on time today for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday. I am still having a great time with my new Flourishes stamps...the possibilities are endless with these fabulous sets. The host of this weeks challenge is Cindy Haffner and she wants us to use some Shimmerz on our cards.

The images I used are from the "Poppy Patch" set.
I have never done an all white card before so I thought I would give it a try.

I embossed the images on water color paper with black and painted them with Tombows. I cut each flower out, shaped them with a shaping tool and layered them with foam tape. I used Shimmerz "coal" on the black centers. The white highlights were done with my Inkssentials pen. The scallop frame is cut with my nesties and I used a CB folder on the white frame behind the flowers. I used my MS doily lace punch for the card and the third layer as well as the corners. The border on the second piece is a EK Success border punch and it was also embossed with a CB folder. The third layer is embossed with my CB folder swiss dots. I pierced the holes in the white frame with my Ornare piercing tool.
I am quite pleased with the way it turned out....hope you like it too!!

Have a great day, Thanks for stopping by.....


*Flourishes stamps are available at The Rubber Room and on-line stores.
