Flourishes Timeless Tuesday



Hello fellow Flourishes fans! It's Tuesday and we're here with another fantastic Timeless Tuesday Challenge for you!
  
FTTC256 Purple
Timeless-Tuesday-New-LogoThis week Allison is our hostess and she is challenging you to create using the newest Pantone Color of the year... Radiant Orchid... but any shade of purple will do! According to the Pantone View, "Since 2000, the Pantone Color Institute™ has been designating a Color of the Year to express in color what is taking place in the global zeitgeist. A color that will resonate around the world, the PANTONE Color of the Year is a reflection of what people are looking for, what they feel they need that color can help to answer. Not necessarily the hot fashion color of the moment, but a color crossing all areas of design which is an expression of a mood, an attitude, on the part of the consumers." Have fun using purple in your creations this week! This week, we have asked the Design Team to join us in celebrating the colour purple.

I have a CAS card to share with you today, in which I used the Iris from one of my new favorite sets, Flowers for Jan.  I just stamped it with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink, colored it with Copics, and framed it using Flourishes Classic Ivory card stock, the Crocus collection (Color Made Easy) and some Spellbinders dies.


 Take a moment and leave some lavender love on each one of our designers this week!
Here are the Copics I used:  along with Y38 and Y08 (flowers) and YG21 (Leaves)
