July Beautiful World Tour

Attention: I have moved my blog over to Wordpress.  Please see this post on my new website,

Hello and welcome to the July Beautiful World Tour!

If you have arrived from Sasha's Blog, then you are in the right place.  If not, please head over to the Flourishes Blog to start from the beginning.

One lucky winner is chosen from the comments each month to WIN their choice of Flourishes stamp set.  All you need to do is follow the hop and leave comments along the way.  You do not need to comment on every stop, however, the more you comment on, the bigger your chance of winning!

This month,  Sasha has challenged us girls to use a Citrus Colour Palette. 

Here is my creation:
I used Flourishes' Life, Love and Lemons Stamp Set, stamping it with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colouring it with Copic Markers.

I guess I wasn't too creative, this time, in the sense that I actually used a citrus image, not just the colour palette but, I chose my papers and just really liked this image with them.

I used the following Copic Marker Collections from Flourishes:

Anyway, I hope you enjoyed your stay.

Your next stop is....

Happy Stamping!

Oh, I'm a huge fan of mixing dp and I LOVE how you've layered up these patterns - and the shape of the frame is fabulous. Your whole card has kind of a Moroccan feel to it - beautiful!
