Timeless Tuesday Challenge #30

Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge has hit week 30, wow that is just amazing. I guess I would of participated in about 20 of these challenges. I just love Flourishes stamps the Floral sets are just beautiful.
For FTTC30 our challenge was to use pearls on our cards. For me this was so easy as I have pearls by the hundreds. I just love them and the range of colours that are now available is just astounding.
I chose to use the Sweet Violets set, this one has only been out a couple of months. It is just so gorgeous.
I stamped the violets using Brilliance Graphite Black ink and coloured in with my favourite Prismacolor Pencils and blended with Odourless mineral spirits My shapes were all cut out using nestabilities classic oval and petite oval sets. The designer paper was from Kaisercraft as were the pearls.
I was so pleased with how this card came out. Lets see if it's enough to win the challenge.
Don't forget blog candy will be drawn in just a few days

Until Next Time
Inking of you all

What a nice surprise when I see a new card of yours here, Michelle. You certainly practise what you preach - the colour scheme is just beautiful. The violets look just like the ones that are blooming in my mum's garden now.
