Timeless Tuesday #181

It's release week at Flourishes and with it comes lots of opportunities to win some of their new stamp sets. Yesterday's Timeless Tuesday challenge is a sketch challenge. Here is my take on it using Flourishes 'Botanical Bookplates Vol 2'. This is my first time using this set, just love the pansies. When I was young I remember all of the different coloured pansies my father grew in his greenhouse. They are such a happy little flower with an almost unlimited range of colours. I chose to colour blue pansies today, one of my favourite.

Supplies - Standard A2 size

Paper - Sophia, White Daisy & Pear CS (CTMH), Neena Classic Crest Solar White (for image)
Stamps - Botanical Bookplate Vol 2, Tag Lines (Flourishes)
Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black, Copics - B24, B29, B32, YG13, YG17, YG67, Black
Accessories - Sparkles, Sparkle Flourish (CTMH), 1" Satin Ribbon (fabric store)
Other - Embossing Folder (Provo Craft), Small & Large Circles, Labels 4 (Spellbinders), Corner punch (SU), Bow Easy, 3D foam
