A Happy Hello

I'm on schedule to complete a card for each of the 4 challenges celebrating Flourishes 5th birthday.  Today's card is for the color challenge.  Check it out HERE--you might want to play along!  One of my favorite Flourishes sets is Thinking of You.  The little solid tulip image caught my eye as soon as I got it, but I've never tried to use it until now.  I love the image I got by stamping it 4 times in each color, don't you?  I think it'd also make great printed paper, so may try that next.  My inks are Color Box Fluid Chalk Rouge, Pigment Apricot, Pigment Sky Blue & VersaMagic Aquatic Splash.  The dies are Spellbinders circles.  I mounted them with foam tape to a panel embossed with Spellbinders Impressabilities Circles that was edged with a Fiskar's punch & the 4 inks were lightly applied using direct to paper.  You think I like bling, a little, maybe?!  The sentiment is from my frequently used Flourishes Taglines, but this one had never been inked.  I love the mixed font & how even the small Flourishes stamps give a great impression.  I didn't want the starkness of black, so stamped it in Memento Gray Flannel.  Nothing complicated, but hopefully it will cheer up my sis who's going through a rough time.  Thanks so much for stopping by.  Hope you're enjoying the weekend.
