Just a quick post, folks!
This week's Timeless Tuesday challenge at Flourishes blog (FTTC163, finishes very soon, hence the rush), asks for a birthday card, and I thought it would be a fine reason to finally ink up the Hollyhocks set. It's hands down one of the most gorgeous sets ever released by Flourishes, and it's only because of the large size of the image, that this baby waited for so long to see ink...


I coloured the image with Copics: Y21/Y26/Y28 for the yellow flowers; YR01/YR24/YR27 for the rusty orange ones; and R20/R43/R46 for pinks. The leaves were coloured with YG99/YG97/YG95/YG93/YG91, and the sky with B00 with a hint of BG70.
I distressed the white cardstock with Frayed Burlap Distress Ink, and added the sentiment in S4-110 Classic Ovals LG/S4-111 Classic Scalloped Ovals LG.
I also used the Fleur De Lis shape from S5-081 Damask Motifs and some pearls, to create my "hinges".

The sketch that I also used, SC379...

I hope you enjoyed the post :) See you later! Mwah,
