Flourishes and this month, the challenge is to make something warm and inviting with a picture in blue and browns with a coffee cup as an inspiration. Well, this one took a while for me to get into the spirit - it's Summer here in Australia with high temperatures and bush fires......and I don't drink coffee!! Ah Well, I find there's always a Flourishes stamp in my - er - extensive collection to fit the bill. So it was this great image from Flourishes Stitched For You stamp set to the rescue. I started with dark brown cardstock and layered on some Kaisercraft paper - I think the collection was called Cocco. Then I took another piece from the same collection and layered it onto light brown cardstock and added that to the background. Next I die cut dark brown and dark blue cardstock with dies from Spellbinders Marvelous Squares, stuck them together and added them. I stamped the sentiment (from Flourishes Autumn Blossoms) with Memento Rich Cocoa onto white cardstock and made a notched tag layered onto light brown cardstock. Finally I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo Black onto blending card, coloured it with copics, cut it into a rectangle, layered it onto light brown cardstock, and added it with foam tape.
Copic Colours used were: B0000, B000, B00, B02, B21, B23, B26, E000, E11, E23, E25, E27, E43, E44, E47.
