Flourishes August Beautiful World Tour




Hello and welcome to the Beautiful World Tour showcasing work by the talented Design Team using fabulous Flourishes sets!
You've arrived at your stop in Belfast, Northern Ireland and if you've flown in from Meredith's blog in beautiful British Columbia, you're in just the right place.
If you've wandered in here and want to start at the beginning,
you can do that by hopping over to the Flourishes blog.
One lucky winner is chosen from all the comments each month to win a
Flourishes stamp set of their choice, so good luck!
This month our hostess is Naomi and the challenge is to
create using a flower inspired by the country in which we live.
 I had to get my thinking cap on for this as we don't have a national flower here in Northern Ireland.  The closest thing might be the bloom of the flax plant, used in producing linen, it has a lovely blue flower with five petals, which is represented in various design aspects of
 Northern Ireland's Parliament building, Stormont.
However, ever since I first came here to live, I've been fascinated by the vast array of roses grown in gardens from the smallest cottages to the biggest of huge country estates,
so that's what I went with!  I used the beautiful 
Flourishes Old Tea Rose 
set for my image and
Sentimental Favorites 
for the "miss you" message!
This colour combo is one I'm partial to at the moment!
I stamped the flower image twice so that I could pop it up for a little dimension, here's a closer look:



Here are the copic colours I used:
R27, R22, R20, R000 for the rose and YG17, YG23, YG67 for the leaves.

Thanks so much for stopping by today, now it's time to head on over to
Sasha's blog and check out her fabulous creation!
