Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Inspiration Challenge

Last Tuesday the Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge was an inspiration challenge. The challenge was to search through the posters from Kimberly Poloson on the Allposters.com web site and select one to use as your inspiration for a card. Only problem? I missed the whole 'Kimberly Poloson' part of the challenge, so I went to Allposters.com and just started looking through ALL the posters....there are a LOT of them! LOL! I had decided that I wanted to use the tulip from the Thank You set, so I narrowed my search to posters with tulips, and found this one that I knew would be perfect to go with this patterned paper- Memories of Sienna II. Off I went and made this first card.

Later, when I went to post the card for the challenge, I discovered the whole 'Kimberly Poloson' thing....so I started over! Back to Allposters.com to search again. This time I found this poster - Bel Bouquet I - that I thought would be great using the Sweet Peas set. So off I went to make this second card!



For the first card, the patterned paper is from Frances Meyer, the card stock is Papertrey Ink Kraft and Rustic White, and Prismatics Island Mist. Stamps are all from Flourishes (Birds and vine, and Thank you, and Ornamental Elements). The tulips were colored with Copic markers, cut out and popped up with foam tape. The flower images from Birds and Vines were stamped in the upper left and bottom left corners of the patterned paper and the main flourish from Ornamental Elements was stamped on the rustic white card stock behind the tulips. The ribbon is May Arts taupe silk from Sharon's Ribbon Store.

For the second card, the card stock is Papertrey Ink's Rustic Cream and Stampin' UP!'s Bravo Burgundy. I used a variety of stamps on this one - the backgrounds are Linen from Stampin UP! and Le London Script from Stampendous. The flowers are from Flourishes Sweet Peas set and were colored with Copic markers. The sentiment is from Flourishes' Flourished Words set. The ribbon is May Arts ivory silk that I colored with Antique Linen Distress Ink to match the card. The copper pearls are from Kaisercraft.

Hope you had a nice weekend! Please be sure to check back tomorrow for a chance to win some blog candy!
