Hop on over and see what these ever-so-talented ladies created using this exclusive set!
I did a little bit of experimenting with this fabulous new FLIP image!   I couldn't resist pulling out my Copic Airbrush and going a little... WiLd!

I die cut my image on Flourishes Classic White Cardstock, leaving my die still on my image, I airbrushed Copic YR04, Y19 and Y38 right across my flowers.

Then I took my Copic Blender Pen and pushed all the colour out of all the flowers and stems of the image.  I think the way it left them with a slight hint of colour and patchy is cool!   Then I added a splash of dark grey Copic speckle across the image.

As my final touch I added the beautiful sentiment on the front along with some beautiful "Mango Orange" Seam Binding Ribbon, gold metallic string and a Sunflower Light Button too!

Remember, the only way to get your hands on this beautiful new set called Happy Thoughts is to become a FLIP member. When you qualify, this stamp set is our gift to you! Coming soon, we'll be adding a Silhouette Cut File to the store, just for this set! Fun stuff! Before we go, be sure to tune back in tomorrow! The Senior Design Team will be focusing on one set that's been a Flourishes Favorite for quite some time. You won't want to miss all the creativity coming your way .... just in time for some weekend creativity. See you back here then!

How beautiful Allison! I love the airbrush background and pretty die cut card base. :)

Oh that is so smart to use your blender pen to push out the colour from the petals - it's almost like a bleach pen! Gorgeous girl!

Julie Koerber said...

One word -- GASP! Oh my. This is a stunner Ally! I absolutely love the yellows and the edgy way you colored up these beautiful blossoms. This is such a "WOW" card!!!

Cheryl said...

Wow, Allison! This looks amazing! I love the ombre airbrushing and how cool that you un-colored your image! Beautiful use of that image, too, and LOVE, LOVE the bold, black frame with the feminine ruffle. A Stunner, for sure!

WOW!! Gorgeous Ally! These colors make it pop and with that black die as the base, amazing!
