Hello Hycanith

With February’s sets, Flourishes is ready to melt off the snow and usher in some beautiful botanicals and sets that really deliver a dose of spring! Are you ready to get a peek at one of our two new sets?


Hello Hyacinth Graphic
This set offers two beautiful images featuring Hyacinths – one is a gorgeous blooming bulb – the other is a hand tied bouquet so sweet that you can almost smell those flowers in bloom! This set, artfully drawn by Marcella Hawley, also features a dozen beautifully scripted sentiments to use for all occasions! Would you like to win this set? Simply leave us a comment  on the Flourishes blog today and we’ll announce the winner Saturday at noon central standard time in our Winner’s Circle Post!

Having just returned home for CHA, where I had a chance to attend the Copic Intermediate level class I was egar to color this image.

I do think I could have gone deeper in color in my shadows but time and practice will be in order to master these techniques.  My biggest news made at  CHA perfect in my book was the announcement of Pensacola as an area for the the Intermediate class, dates in May to be announced soon.

I just love this set. I used Flourishes Classic White for the image layer and used many Copics, mostly in the lightest of each shade.  Sorry I put them away before I wrote my notes for the blog.  The paper is from my stash of older paper I want to use up because I know what we have coming in the next few months.  Sharon & I had fun putting together a great assortments of all a papercrafter necessities.

I do hope that you will join the hop and see what the designers have in their blogs.
