The Name Game Challenge


Hello Again Friends!

What's in a name?  By another other name would a rose smell so sweet?  How about making a name a source of creative direction?  This week Julie has invited some of our Flourishes Fans to create the noon-time challenges and Suzanne Czosek joins us this noon to usher in one fun-filled challenge that is all about the name game!  Simply use your monogram as the inspiration for your creation. Keyword: FLLCORW1 Deadline for challenge would be Friday, October 14th at 5 
PM EST.


So here's where I went with my initials...CCO.  Cream, Coloring and Ovals



I used the beautiful hanging ball of misteltoe from the set and added lots of elegance in shape and texture.  I colored up the misteltoe with some blue green copics using the Spruce Collection as well as adding some touches of green with my G40, and then the Creams with the Creamy Collection of Copics.  


I used numerous Spellbinders Shapes:  The fancy flourishes are new Shapeabilities called Floral Flourishes , Scalloped Ovals, Lacy Ovals, and Lacy Squares (for the bottom border).  


For accent I've added some thin Teal Velvet ribbon threaded through some lovely fancy crochet ribbon.   The pretty sparklets are new in the store too Kaiser - Sea Breeze.  Super classy!


So for more inspiration on this great challenge please visit....  Tammy, Stacy, Maki and Suzanne
