Flourishes Grab a Cup - November Release Challenge

This months Flourishes release challenge was to create something inspired by the following beautiful photo.


I was inspired by the colour combination, the round saucer and the woodgrain of the table. The stamp is the Sturts Desert Rose from the Flourishes "Blooming Aussie Florals" stamp set. Now I have used some artistic licence when colouring the flowers as they certainly aren't blue and brown out in real life. The image was stamped with memento tuxedo black ink and coloured with copics B00, 24, 29 and touches of BG000 and BG15 on the flowers and E000, E 31,33, 35 and E57. The spotty brown paper is from a 6x6 pad by Fancy Pants Designs - Country Boutique. I wish I knew who made the woodgrain paper as I would definitely get some more. The sentiment is also from the same Flourishes set stamped with memento rich cocoa, die cut with a Spellbinder label 18 die and colour with tumbled glass and chipped sapphire distress inks. I don't know where the ribbon came from it has been lying around in my stash a while.

 
Thank you for checking out my blog, even if it just briefly. Cheers Linda

So so pretty, I love that you coloured the flowers blue and brown, I'm always so boring and never think to colour 'outside the box'. Thanks for the inspiration!
