Hi, it’s Holly posting today. I was coloring some of these tulip images, and I wanted to see how it looked in shades of chocolate as opposed to the normal pinks, reds, and yellows. I stamped this gorgeous Boxed Tulip with some kraft ink onto kraft cardstock. Then I pulled out my Prismacolor pencils and started coloring with a dark chocolate, a milk chocolate, and a white chocolate pencil. Yum! Are you hungry yet?
I love the stark modern look of the chocolate tulip, so I went for a similar bold modern look for my card. I adhered the chocolate tulip to a dark chocolate card. Three chocolate pearls were affixed to the lower left corner of the card, and then I added some strips of kraft cardstock to the left and the bottom of the card. My final touch was to tie some chocolate ribbon around the top of the card.
Did you see what Kia did with this same Boxed Tulip stamp last week? Isn’t that beautiful? There are so many ways to use this gorgeous tulip stamp. I love how Kia colored her stamp and misted it with water before pressing it onto the paper. That’s a stunning watercolor look. You could also stamp the tulip and paint it with watercolors instead of using colored pencils.
