Flourishes New Release - Strut Your Stuff!

Well it's a great few days ahead with the New Releases at Flourishes!

Our first set this week is a gorgeous one called Strut Your Stuff!


I've embossed this gorgeous peacock with Copper Embossing Powder on watercolor paper and watercolored it with teals and celerys and turquoises.

I used my Spellbinders Nestabilities to give it a frame but tucked the tail out of the nestie so it would have an out of the box tail. I sponged color on the inside of the nestie and layered it together.

I added a pretty criss-cross of cording and copper brads to the sides under the main image gave it gorgeous teal velvet ribbon and this fabulous paper from K & Co, with gems to match.

Be sure to check out the Flourishes Newsletter today for your chance to win this set, and see the other Design Team members blog for their fabulous creations with this set!
