Sunshine and Blue Skies - Pre-Release Challenge


It's that beautiful time of the month again!  Flourishes is about to release a beautiful new round of stamps for June in just a few days that will give you the wonderful feeling of summer.  So our challenge is a Color Challenge with the theme of yellow and blue....create something with these colors and you could enter to win the entire new June Release from Flourishes! 

Now Julie DID SAY that it can be any shade of yellow or blue....so I took my own liberties to make my yellow a very bold sunflower yellow...and my blues to be a yummy turquoise blue-green 

I think this set A Year in Flowers 1 is such a  beautiful set for spring!  Those daffodils just delight me, I colored them with the Sunflower Copic Collection, with a little YR04, and Meadow on the the greens.  Then I masked the image with Eclipse Masking Tape and gave it some good sponging with Bermuda Bay and Tempting Turquoise Ink.  The designer papers are eeek I'm not sure!  They're Basic Grey - but I think from two packs!  ...nope just found it :)  Max and Whiskers.   The sketch is from 2 weeks ago's Mojo Sketch and I used the Scalloped Ovals for the main shape.  The pretty smidgins of ribbon are some of our Boutique Cuts that you can purchase really economically by the yard,   Cotton Linen Turquoise


So please join us!  You could be the winner of this month's whole release!  Link at the Flourishes Blog, and use the code FLLCJUN10 for online galleries.
