Timeless Tuesday #120



Wow, it's so hard to believe we're up to challenge #120 for Timeless Tuesday! The days just fly by! This week, the Uber-Creative Cindy Haffner is our challenge hostess and she has a color challenge for you this week... use Cranberry, Caramel and/or Dark Grey and Brown. Stop on over at the Flourishes blog for all the challenge details on how you can enter your own creation. We give one lucky participant $10 each week to spend in the Flourishes online store, so check out the challenge rules and play along!

I decided to create a Father's Day card for the challenge, using the wood-grain paper from October Afternoon for my dark grey, and Kraft for the caramel (because I LOVE my Kraft cardstock!) This stamp set is the new What a Catch set, and has a bunch of wonderful images and sentiments that are perfect for the fishing sons, fathers and grandfathers in your life! I talked my hubby into digging through his tackle box and finding me an old hook to embellish the twill ribbon! For safety, I had him cut off the barb! :)

Check out the fabulous creations today from the other Flourishes bloggers for more inspiration...

Brenda O'Rear/Benzi - May Guest Designer

I can't wait to see what you create with these colors! Happy stamping!

Tammy this is a stunning male card for sure. Just love it. You are able to color all your pictures so well. I am jealous. Have some copic's but no one around where I live in Upstate NY does any classes on copics. Boo hoo hoo. I am trying to pick up any tutorials or other things to learn as much as I can on coloring. Thank you for always sharing your creations with us. They are just great. Love your blog.

Love how you used the colour challenge. The barn wood was the perfect way to introduce dark grey.
