Grab Life By the Handlebars


Welcome to another Friday at Flourishes!  Today we're going to show you another peek at our New Releases, and remind you that the New Release Bundle is still on sale at a 10% discount, today only!  


Today I did another look at the very fun Bike Ride set, giving it a more masculine touch.  Colored up with Copics, and then paired with this great Authentique - Loyal paper.  


As you can see, a fun detail I added was to snip-cut and roll a strip of dp and create my own "grass".  I love how rolling the edge gives you a peek at the other side of this sheet of paper.  

And another wee detail, the beautiful teal braided trim cording I used wasn't quite the right match to the papers.  It had a much more teal look.  So, all I did was touch it up with my copic marker (B95) and then it was a perfect match.  

Join the rest of the DT and see what they have to show off today!



Copics: B93, B95, B97, R14, YG93, YG95, YG99, W1, W3, W5, W7, W9, E84, E87, E89
