Welcome Flourishes fans! It's the first Monday of the month, which means it's time for another quick tour around the world, gaining inspiration from our talented designers!
You should have arrived here from Iwona's blog, but if you've happened here by chance, you might want to go back to the Flourishes blog and start at the beginning.
As always, our tour can win you some free Flourishes stamps... all you have to do is leave a comment on the designers' blogs as you hop from country to country. Of course, we don't know which blog the comment will be randomly chosen from, so make sure you comment on all the blogs you visit!
This month, Sasha is our hostess, and the challenge is "Citrus" - interpret how we please. At first, I felt sort of bummed that I don't have the fun citrus themed sets from Flourishes, but then I thought that sometimes it's more fun when you have to work with what you have to make a challenge work. So I decided to go with a citrus-y colour theme.
Yes, I know that Hydrangeas don't usually have a yellow-ish hue to them, but I took creative license, because I really wanted to use this beautiful image - one of my favourite summer blooms!
I stamped my image and clear embossed it, which also gave a different effect to my colouring - sort of interesting I thought. I also stamped the orange panel with the single bloom image from the same set, and them embossed it with a large polka dot folder (can you see that in my photo?).
It's time to pack up and head over to your next destination - don't forget to comment before you go! - the lovely and wonderfully talented...
