Fussy Cut Falling Flowers for Fall

Hello friends!  Happy weekend!  I’m actually excited about it being the weekend!  This weekend is a nice long holiday weekend so I can spend time with hubby!  Yay!  However, I won’t be resting on my blog as there are lots of fun things going on since it’s the start of a new month!  So be sure to keep stopping by to see what’s going on!  🙂

Today is my turn on the Brutus Monroe Blog to share my inspirational team project and I was inspired by the letter ‘F’ basically!  I took out some flowers and fussy cut them and colored them in happy Fall like colors.

I’ve taken the gorgeous Brutus Monroe Inked Flowers stamp set and settled on about 3 different sized floral images to work with along with a couple of leaves.  I’ve colored them with both Stylefile Markers from Brutus Monroe as well as Copic markers and then cut them out with my Brutus Monroe fussy cutting scissors…I set them aside.

I took a piece of BM Alabaster cardstock along with some BM masking paper and began working in the flowers for the background with BM Raven Detail Ink.  I made a mask for them as a went along and worked my way up.  After I was done, I took an ink foam blending tool and some BM Sea Surface Ink to sponge around the top and side of the panel.  I attached the flowers on with BM glue and some BM foam tape.  (I used the thicker foam tape for the largest flower.)

For the banner, I heat embossed the sentiment from the BM Super Sentimental stamp set  over some BM Raven cardstock with BM Alabaster white EP and cut it into a banner and attached it to the card.  Lastly, I took out the sequins from this month’s Inspiration Box as they looked like an orange-y type color and glued a few of those on and then added some gold glitter to the centers.

I attached the Alabaster floral panel over a piece of BM Phonebook cardstock and then mounted that over an A2 sized top folding Raven cardstock base.

Here’s closer look at the flowers and how I’ve colored them in.  I’ve used both BM Stylefile Markers and Copics to color these with as I don’t have too many of the Stylefile markers in my stash yet, but hope to get more as the price point is nice!

You can better see the sequins that I’ve used.  I actually had one of them laying on my table while I was assembling this card and thought the color matched up nicely with it.  Otherwise, I would’ve never thought to get those out to use on this particular card!  You never know what could be lurking on your table un-used! LOL!
