A Season of Celebrations

Flourishes is having another Noon Time Challenge.  Last release, we challenged players to come up with a fun and unique twist on a challenge, suggest it and they could win a chance to be in the Flourishes spotlight – not only would their challenge be picked, they would be the superstar of the day ushering the challenge as well! Our second challenge hostess this noon is the talented Linda Carson! We loved her challenge to tap Flourishes Tutorial Library and try a new technique on for size!  


So I actually tired using two techniques.  One which I often use....Sponging, and the other was to put this adorable Silhouette image in a window.  Well, lets just say that turned into a HUGE mess!  I was not happy at all.  I was able to salvage the whole card and just skipped the window part.  Luckily I was able to cover the hole with a larger piece of card stock and placed a piece of card stock on the back so nobody would ever know...except me.  ;)  I found out the hard way that the Lacey Squares Spellbinders dies DO NOT nest with the Classic Squares....there was a big difference in size.  I guess I should have checked into that before I started cutting everything.  Lesson learned!!





How to Play: Simply scroll through Flourishes Tutorial Library HERE.  Once you find a technique or project that you’d like to give a try, have some creative fun and make it! After you’re done, be sure to share a link to the post on our tutorial library, so we can all see what inspired you! Be sure to link up to this post using our inlinkz widget. You need to do that in order to be in the running. If you upload to SCS, please use the keyword FLLCORW2. You have until Friday, October 14th at  5PM EST to enter! Let’s get that name game started and get creative!

Be sure to link back to the Flourishes post for all the official rules. We have a few that will be too many to name. i.e. use Flourishes stamps and you get counted twice, no combining challenges. Etc.!

Here are the other Design Team members who are playing along:

Thanks so much for stopping by,

You'd never know that you goofed up when looking at this card! it's just so cute with those silhouettes. I like the way you incorporate stitching into everything you do; it just adds a great homespun feel. Oh, and what's not to like about footsies? I still buy them for my 11-y.o and 9-y.o. sons!!!! :D

So cute Heather! Love that adorable image! Love your sponged window!

Whatever it took to get there doesn't matter because you persevered and ended up with something beautiful. I spent an hour on a card today trying a technique that ended up in the trash! So you were considerably more successful that I was.
