Flourishes Peek



I have a peek today of a fabulous, soon-to-be released Flourishes set called Peaches and Cherries. You can find this absolutely delicious set at Stamper's Dream on Friday night!

I did my coloring with Copic markers, then added a few dollops of Diamond Glaze to the fruit and leaves to look like water drops. The frame of tiny squares around the main image is one of the patterns from Basic Grey's Marrakech line, the lime panel is from BG's Lemonade, and the yellowish-orange strips at the top and bottom are from K&Co's Que Sera Sera line. I cut the white scallop panels with Spellbinders Fancy Scalloped Border Piercabilities and then embellished the scallops with brown mini brads. Elsewhere I've added some machine stitching, paper piercing, brown twill, and dew drops.

Have a great day!
