Flourishes and Imagine Crafts Cyber Monday Blog Hop

Welcome to the new Flourishes first partner blog hop with Imagine Crafts. They sent our designers some amazing ink pads to work with while we created for today and we sent them some of our fabulous stamps! Thank you for joining us!

We are excited to share with you our designer’s creativity. Make sure to leave a comment on each designer’s blog as we will be giving prizes away randomly from two blogs. Since it was my Anniversary on Friday and our attempts to celebrate were interrupted by a sick kiddo, please leave a comment for hubby and me!

I started by creating a background using Brilliance Galaxy Gold pigment ink, sponging it through a stencil. Then I added some sponged inks to coordinate with the colour of the butterflies on the patterned paper. I inked the edges of the pink text packaging with Memento Rich Cocoa dye ink to distress it lightly. Enlarge the photo to see how  I added some Celestial Copper pigment ink to the edges of the scalloped cork circle and Brilliance Pearlescent Olive pigment ink to the center. More gold ink was added to the edges of some of the paper layers for extra shine.

The focal image is from Year of Flowers 1, coloured with Copics. I used non-traditional crocus colours, who says art has to be accurate after all??! I decided to match  the colouring to the shades of the butterflies so I used yellow and pink.

Some details to notice: friend sticker (the light is hitting it strangely because it’s a glossy, puffy sticker, it’s underneath the tulip), mirrored cardstock hearts, Copic coloured wood veneer heart and ephemera: tag, ticket, pretty packaging from embellishments (pink text) and music paper. There are three colours of twine on the tag all knotted separately. I’ve never done that before and I love it. There are mulberry roses, sequins, gems and mini pompom lace. The final touch was the thanks sentiment cut from gold textured art paper.

Please hop along with us. You will get so much inspiration from both teams of designers. Don’t forget to leave as many comments as you can to increase your chances of winning!

Enjoy, Rebecca

Hi! I’m a disabled SAHM of three wonderful boys. Married since 1997 to Tim. I love crafts, creating art, sewing, needlework, making jewelry, reading, watching movies and snuggling with my fat tabby cat, Jesse. My boys are all on the autism spectrum so it’s a chaotic but fun life. I live in a small town north-east of Toronto, Ontario, Canada. It’s in the middle of corn fields and horse farms while still feeling like a suburb.
