Flourishes Timeless Tuesday: Winter

Good morning! It's time for yet another fun filled Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge! This week Cindy is challenging us to create a : Winter Inspired Card or Project! This is one of those fun challenges for me, because I absolutely love winter! 

I decided to pull out one of this month's new releases called "Snow Day" and create a playful kind of card.

I used Flourishes "Snow Day" stamped on paper from Flourishes 123 "Viola" Kit. I stamped the image out another piece of paper from the Viola Kit to create the ice skate's "pom-poms". Then I used a Tailor-Made Classic Keyhole Die to frame up the skates. The lace, ribbon and green rhinestone are also from the Viola 123 Kit, then I used V04 Copic from the Flourishes Violet Copic Collection, to color the laces in and complete the look.
Here is the Copic Collection I used for this card:

TIP: Don't be afraid to mix mediums and look for coloring inspirations in other places. I was in my local Micheals two years ago and found tiny bottles of Model Car paint for 25 cents each! I picked some up and used the Gold paint to highlight the skate's blades for some interest. It has a great metallic shine that you just can't get from markers.

All this month I am using Flourishes "Viola" 123 Kit. With all of it's versatility and embellishments, you will want one too! I personally loved all of the beautiful papers and trims :)
