Flourishes Timeless Tuesday – Wedded Bliss


Wow, it's been quite a week since I last posted! For starters, my computer bit the dust, so I was in search of a new one…which would be fun, if I weren't so desperate and needing a replacement ASAP! Anyway, I found the computer of my dreams, a Toshiba all-in-one, which means no more wire city under my stamp table! It has Windows 8 (yikes! I'm so confused, but I bought a book that will hopefully take the edge off!). With that set up & ready to go, I could get back to stamping…right up until I wanted to actually post on my blog and needed to crop my photos, time to search for my Photoshop disk & install that. Luckily I found it relatively quickly. So, here we are…

I actually started coloring this image for the Flourishes Wedded Bliss challenge last night, and finally around 9:00 I went upstairs to visit with my hubby. The roses (Roses are Red set by Flourishes) were pink at that point, but I started wishing I had colored them red. Something about white, black & red just screams wedding to me. Hmmm, it was on my mind all night. Good grief, it's just paper, so color another one right?!?! Noooo, instead I thought I'd try coloring over what I already had. Wow it worked!! The first time the roses were colored with R81, R83, & R85, then today I colored over that with R20, R22, R29. Here's what it looked like half way through re-coloring:


Then of course I wanted to modify the greens too, yesterday they were YG03, YG05, YG07, and today they are G21, G24, G28 ha!

I also stamped my rose image in Real Red (SU!) on the inside of the card (after stamping off first to give a lighter look), then the Congrats on top in Memento Black ink.


Thanks so much for stopping by today, and I hope you try something new too!
