A Day of Joy

Hello Flourishes Friends! Welcome to another Flourishes LC September Challenge  - I hope you enjoyed the projects that were shared last week - and are ready for more inspiration today. Thank you for the lovely comments you made - each one was read and appreciated!  This week Naomi has challenged us to add some sparkle on our cards - i love a little bit of sparkle - how about you!!  If you have come from Beverly's Blog you are in the right place.

I stamped the  image onto Flourishes Classic White card stock using black ink and coloured the background using watercolour markers. Kindy Glitz/Liquid Glitter has been lightly added to the ripples on the water, to add some shimmer. This has then been cut out using a rectangle Die, which has been used as a stencil before removing the card stock, by sponging using light blue ink and a sponge dauber.  

The rectangle has then been popped up; using  3D Foam Squares; onto black cardstock,  The sentiment has also been stamped using black ink and the cardstock has been hand-cut into a pennant. Twine has been threaded through each end, then it has been popped up on 3D Foam Squares

A strip of embossed cardstock has been torn and adhered across the center of a diecut filigree frame using double sided tape and the layered image has been popped up on 3D Foam Squares in the center of the card.  Silver rhinestones have added an extra 'sparkle' on the corners of the filigree frame.

Please check out the other Designers Blogs to see how they have tacked the challenge. The next stop along the way is Naomi.
Linda Lucas - You are here
I am looking forward to seeing you at our next Friday, as a part of a weekly Flourishes LC Friday Hop - so much inspiration and you are going to LOVE what each Designer is sharing!
