Timeless Tuesday ~ Something Old, New, Borrowed & Blue

Hey everyone!  Happy Tuesday!  And that means it's time for Flourishes' Timeless Tuesday Challenge!!!  Hooray!!

I’m your hostess for this week’s challenge.  It’s July and we’re right in the throws of wedding season so this week, your challenge is to create a card or project where you use something “Old, New, Borrowed & Blue“:
  • OLD – use something older from your product stash (paper, embellishments, etc.)
  • NEW - the newest stamp that your just acquired
  • BORROWED – scraplift or CASE a “design” from our Flourishes Gallery (*PLEASE link & credit the project inspiration piece from our gallery.)
  • BLUE – add something blue on it!
**PS:  Your creation does NOT have to be a wedding themed project!**
Here is the card that I came up with using our “Old, New, Borrowed & Blue” theme…
I began by die cutting a circle from Flourishes Classic Ivory Cardstock.  I stamped my fairy image from the new “Garden Fairies” stamp set (my “newest” stamp!).  I borrowed my design from a card created by the lovely Christine Okken called “Watercoloured Tea Rose” (my “borrowed” design) from the Flourishes Gallery.
Then I coloured my image using the following Copic Collections:

Here is a close up of my little fairy.  I added some fine clear glitter to her wings and the dandelion too!  For her wings, I stamped them twice and fussy cut them out and added some foam adhesive behind the ends to pop them up.
My patterned papers are an older line of BasicGrey (my “old” item) and I used blue ink on my image (my “blue” item).
I decided to decorate the inside of my card too!  I used the same image from the new “Garden Fairies” stamp set again using orange ink.  I also stamped a sweet little sentiment from the same collection using Memento “Lulu Lavender” ink.

Thanks for checking out the Timeless Tuesday Challenge today!  Please be sure to check out some wonderful inspiration from our extremely talented team:
I hope you'll join us for our challenge this week!  Don't forget to leave some comments for my fellow designers.  Have a great Tuesday!
