FTTC52C Fruit Inspired

Today we are celebrating Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenges 1st Anniversary!! I am thrilled to have been asked to play along for the celebrations - thank you ladies!! Today is a HUGE day and The Design Team from Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenges are going to be bringing you heaps of inspiration.


This sample is for Dee Jackson's "Fruity Birthday" challenge (FTTC52C) Please check out the Flourishes Anniversary Celebration post to find out how to play along!  As I didn't have any of the fruit sets, I decided to be inspired by the colours of fruit and have used the Poppy set - thanks again to Michelle (aka happylittlestamper) for letting me use her Flourishes images.

I used the lovely fruit we get here in Australia around Christmas as my inspiration....peaches, nectarines, plums - their colours are all gorgeous and worked well with the Poppy,  I coloured it with SU Chalks and a Blender Pen, cutting the flower and the leaf out and popping them up on foam dots, you can get an idea of the dimension in this photo, along with the sentiment.


I didn't have to do much with the DP as it already had the shimmering flourishes on it, a bit of sponging around the edges was all it needed.  I added some corner Vintage DieCuts, which are part of a RAK, thanks Mum (Lesley aka SuperNan), I love these corners. The sentiment has also been sponged around and layered onto Black CS,


 Make sure you check out what the Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge Team and other players done - be prepared to be inspired to the "MAX!' There is so much to see today!

Thank you for visiting and for your lovely comments, they are so encouraging and I love seeing that you have been - it makes my day! I will see you again soon with my card for Challenge number FOUR...are you loving it!! I am!   Make sure you link your cards to Mr. Linky over at the Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge BlogGod bless you!!
