It's "Flourishes & Bling" over at Sophisticats this week & this is the challenge that caused me grief, as flourishes & bling ain't really my thing. I couldn't work out how to incorporate the theme into the cards I was making, so decided to go right out of my comfort zone and go Vintage, which isn't something I do very often. I used a picture from a CD, made the flower using my SU! Scallop Circle punch and glued some sparkly beads to a large brad for the centre, and cut out some swirls using my Cuttlebug. The background is done with a Stamping' Up! Wheel using Versamark. So it's a rather subtle flourishes & bling, but that's fine, you can go all out or just add a touch as long as you follow the theme.
Here's the details:
Stamps - SU! It's Beautiful Wheel; Fresh Cuts (used on the flower)
Cardstock - SU! Chocolate Chip; Very Vanilla
Beads, Pearl & Brad from stash
Other - SU! Scallop Circle Punch; Cuttlebug dies; SU! Distressing Tool
I'm entering my card into A Spoonful of Sugar as their theme this week is beads.
Hope you can join us & TFL xx
