Happy Monday. Today I get to prep for my colonoscopy. No biggie, it's been 5 years and its time to get checked again.
So while I am doing that, I want to share with you a new stamp set that was just released over at Sparkle N Sprinkle.
Aren't these so cute.OK, look at the cup on the left, the yellow one, it's called the tulip tea cup and that is what it reminded me of, a tulip. So when I put my design together I thought of flowers not tea.
And here is what I came up with.
The background panel uses a piece of glossy cardstock and I embossed it with a Sizzix embossing folder and then used alcohol inks to cover the whole panel. After that was done I colored the raised portions on the panel with Copic Markers to make the embossed parts look like they are in a flower garden. Adding the tulips just adds to the garden feel. I cut the stem and the petals freehand,with no template. Attached the stem and next I used my paper shaper on the flower and the leaves and then attached the flower head over the stem. Next I attached the leaves at the base of the card. By just attaching the leaves at the bottom fourth of the leaves it gives the leaf the ability to be manipulated and turned, just like the way they grow from the ground.
Entering this card in the following challenges:
