Beautiful World - Tags

Welcome to this month's Beautiful World Tour, brought to you by Flourishes! Each month the team presents a themed blog hop, hosted by our group of international designers... we are literally spread out all over the globe!  At the heart of our projects is the idea of truly showcasing beauty in card making – whether it be in a beautifully colored image, a fabulous way to incorporate an embellishment or a new twist on a card layout.

If you just happened on the blog hop today because you're a regular reader of my blog, and you'd like to view the entire hop, you can start back at the Flourishes Blog - you'll find a full list of participants there, and all the details you need. If you're already hopping and you arrived here from Meredith's blog, you're doing just fine.

This month our theme is the Beauty of TAGS!

I had some chipboard frames in my stash that I wanted to play with, so I started with those - I embossed them with a Spellbinders folder, inked them black, then painted them with white and pearl acrylic paint and lightly sanded them after they were dry. The images from the On the Porch set were colored with a black Inktense pencil then given just a single, simple pop of color.


 Leave comments for all our designers and you could WIN A FREE FLOURISHES STAMP SET!! Comments will be accepted until the end of the month, and a random comment will be chosen by one of our designers - but we're not telling which one! The more comments you leave, the better your chance of winning will be.

Thanks for hopping with us today!

Thanks for stopping by!
