Timeless Tuesday #231: Old, New, Borrowed, & Blue

Tuesday, July 30, 2013

Hi there! Time for this week's Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge! Allison is our hostess, and, as we're right in the throws of wedding season, her challenge is:

Old, New, Borrowed & Blue

All you have to do is create a card or project where you use something:
   OLD - something older from your product stash
   NEW - the newest stamp that your just acquired
   BORROWED - scraplift a "design" from our Flourishes Gallery (please link the project inspiration piece from our gallery)
   BLUE - add something blue on it!

PS:  It does NOT have to be a wedding themed project!  :)

These are the Old, New, Borrowed & Blue items I used:
   OLD - Stickles
   NEW - Garden Fairies Stamp Set
   BORROWED - Cindy Lawrence's Gorgeous Happy Birthday Jan Marie card
   BLUE - The Fairy's dress
I started by stamping a Garden Fairies image onto Flourishes Classic White Cardstock. Then, I colored it with Copics, cut it with a Spellbinders die, then sponged Peeled Paint Distress Ink along the lower portion of the die cut and Tumbled Glass Distress Ink on the upper portion. The wings got their sparkle from Stickles. I did little sewing, then added a piece of lace, pompom trim, and velvet ribbon. The sentiment is stamped on a Spellbinders die cut and I used Spun Sugar Distress Ink over it.
Inside the card, I used a zig zag punch to cut out a black and a white zig zag, then placed them on a strip of the purple paper from the front of the card so that there is a purple zig zag, too. :)

I hope you'll play along with us this week! And, remember, you don't have to use Flourishes stamps, but if you do, you get two ballots toward the weekly prize! You can find all the details for the challenge here.

Be sure to visit all our designers' blogs and leave some love for them, too! :)
Thanks for stopping by, and have a wonderful week!
