Favourite Flourishes Set

This last card I've made for the Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Celebration was Maki's Favourite Flourishes Set (FTTC52F).  I really have a hard time choosing what would be my Fav Flourishes set, I have so many!  And each month I add to my list of fav's!  But...today I decided to go back to an old favourite the Tulips set called Thank You.  It incorporates everything I love about Flourishes, gorgeous realistic illustration, lots of space to color, a background is even included and beautiful sentiments. 


I love the contrast between the deep oranges and the turquoise.  I watercolored the tulips with my SU Stampin' Write Markers on Flourishes European Watercolor paper.  I paired the tulips with K & Co Que Sera paper which really ties the colors together, using the Labels Four Nesties, Lattice Borderabilities,  and Fancy Labels Die


Back tomorrow with a Flourishes Pre-Release Challenge!  Woo Hoo! 

Recipe:  Stamps:  Flourishes - Thank You;  Ink:  Black Stazon;  Paper:  Only Orange, Tempting Turquoise, Flourishes European Watercolor Paper, K & Co Que Sera DSP;  Accessories:  Big Shot, Labels Four Nesties, Fancy Labels Die, Lattice Borderabilities, Dimensionals, Stampin Up Stampin' Write Markers, Aqua Painter, Tempting Turquoise Grosgrain Ribbon, Tempting Turquoise Brads.

Beautiful! I love the colors. Yesterday I was helping our graphic designer with something and she had something up on her screen with those colors on it and I commented I liked that combo. She clicked something and it went to the right colors but I kept thinking I was going to do that combo. You beat me to it!

All your cards are beautiful. Love the teapot card. Same image as Leslie Miller, but so different as an ending result.
This orange and turquoise card has such a Moroccan feel to it. Love the vibrancy.
