Recessed Posies

How about a clean and simple design for today?  I played with last months’ Flourishes set - Friendship and Flowers and my Silhouette machine and had some fun.  For the release last month I did a similar technique with this set in THIS POST so for instructions you can click there.  Essentially I used the Silhouette cut file for this lovely set and enlarged it in my Silhouette program, then cut it on the Classic Kraft card stock creating a negative space window to stamp my pretty flower in.  

I inked the flower in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and stamped in on this lovely Memorabilia designer paper , colouring it in lightly with copics and highlighting the sentiment with a light copic marker.  

Very simple clean accents including some lines with my Copic Multi-liner, buttons and some simple grey seambinding in a bow.  

Short and sweet for today!  Catch you later this week for our Flourishes Pre-Release Challenge for December…can you believe it!?
