A Tulip’s Beauty

Hello to you, Kia with you today.  I have a spring card to share, with the beautiful weather we have been having, all I can think about is spring and colours.

I used Art Neko’s Framed Tulip for my card, along with the Tulip with Monogram T sentiment.  For my background I stamped the sentiment stamp several times and heat embossed using clear embossing powder on the pale pink cardstock.  I stamped the tulip by colouring it with Distress Markers and spritzing with water before stamping.  I added a bit more colour by adding a deeper pink to the stamp and spritzed again before stamping. There is a frame as part of this stamp, but I cut it off  my piece only because I wanted a smaller image. I went around the image piece with the Citron marker that I coloured the leaf with to give it separation from the pink cardstock, then attached it to the card on foam strips.  And, me being me, I added sequins … they are like the sunshine on a cloudy day for me.

 This is a close up view showing the details of the tulip.  I wanted my tulip to be white with the pink, but I could also paint in the white areas with a coordinating colour for a different look.

Thank you for joining us here at Art Neko Blog today. I hope you enjoy this card today and I look forward to seeing you next time.

    What a fabulous image, Kia – perfect for Spring. I really like the way you left the white in the flowers. And that embossed background with the Tulip monogram is just super.

    *gasp* This is soooooooo pretty!!! I love how you colored the stamp and sprayed it with water before pressing it onto the paper. This looks fabulous!
