Every time I visit ColourQ I gasp at the swatches and this week the colours were perfect for a basket of tulips idea I've had going around in my head for a while. Come and have a look:
I started with a sheet of designer paper from the Everyday Enchantment pack that's free as part of the Sale-a-bration promotion. It started out pumpkin Pie and cream but I jazzed it up with my markers until it was perfect for this project. I think there's a baskety feel about it!
Each tulip is made from three wings from the 2 step bird punch. I punched them out of Daffodil Delight card stock and sponged them with a very little Pumpkin Pie ink to add definition. The leaves and stems are just strips of card stock with a marker line drawn down one side and the leaves shaped a little at the tops.
Here's a close up of that designer paper - it was very therapeutic colouring bits in! I tied a strip of Early Espresso grosgrain ribbon round it and added a label. Have you seen how I combined two sentiments again? It's so easy when you use a stamp-a-majig and markers! I love the little extra details like this butterfly from another free Sale-a-bration set, Elementary Elegance.
Clean and Simple Stamping challenge but the card has turned out to be the most layered I've ever made in my life!
