Good morning, friends! It's my turn to post over at Chocolate Baroque Design Team Blog. And since we are officially in spring I decided to play with my Spring Bird Tulip stamps to make a simple all-ocassion card.
I started by stamping the tulips in a cluster onto Canson Water Colour paper with Versafine Vintage Sepia, masking as I stamp to get the overlapping effect. Next I water coloured the tulips with Winsor & Newton water colours and Caran d'Ache Suprasoft water colour pencils. For the background, I did a wash with Distress Inks: Tumbled Glass and Mermaid Lagoon. To add interest to the project, I tried some green Lawn Fawn twine around the white card base before mounting the image panel with some foam tape.
I couldn't help but add some shimmer to the tulips with the Clear Wink of Stella Brush Tip and a few tiny pale pink bling around the blooms.

True to form, we are having a wet April. But you know that they say: "March winds and April showers, Bring forth May flowers". Well, I can't wait for blooming May! I'm trying to settle into a new routine. It's not easy but your encouraging e-mails, comments and cards have been a HUGE help... more than you'll ever know. Thank you so much.
Have beautiful Sunday, friends!
