Flourishes' Timeless Tuesday Challenge #30

I'm thrilled that my sister Liz has been chosen as the Guest Challenge Host this week for Flourishes' Timeless Tuesday Challenge. You can read her description of the challenge as well as view her gorgeous sample on her blog Right Brain Madness ( Yes, this is one of the ways we are opposite. Right brain- left brain!).

You can also read about the challenge and see the entries in the Flourishes Newsletter.

The short version is use something with pearls or a pearl finish. I created my card using Flourishes' Coffee with Friends and Pearl-Ex.

I stamped the mugs with Versafine Onyx Black and then created a reverse mask so that I could coat them with Versamark. Leaving the mask in place I rubbed copper Pearl-Ex over the surface of the mugs. I then removed the mask and restamped the mugs with Versafine Onyx Black one last time.

Stamps: Coffee with Friends by Flourishes

Inks: Versafine Onyx Black, Versamark

Papers: Whisper White and Basic Black by Stampin' Up, sugared by BasicGrey

Embellishments: Pearl-Ex, Dimensionals, and Ribbon
