Spring Tulips

Hello there, today I have a card to share using the Spring Tulips stamp set from Clearly Besotted. This set was released in March but I never got a chance to use it then, so thought I would now. It is so pretty!

I started off by die cutting a panel of watercolour cardstock using the second largest of the MFT A2 Stitched Rectangle Dies. I then took the tulips in a row stamp and stamped this three times to cover the bottom of the panel. I stamped it using Versamark Ink and then applied white embossing powder. This was then heat set. I applied a wash of water over the panel and then smooshed various shades of Distress Ink on to a craft mat. I picked them up with water and applied them to the panel with a brush. I then splattered the panel a little with a solution of Perfect Pearls and water. This gives a nice subtle shimmer. I then set aside to dry.

Once dry, I adhered the panel on to a white A2 card base with foam tape. The sentiment, from the Tiny Type set, was stamped on to black cardstock using Versamark Ink. I applied white embossing powder and heat set. This was cut in to a strip and added to the card with thin foam tape. To finish off, I added a few Sparkling Clear sequins.

I kept debating on how to colour this image, I am glad that I went with a wash of colour in the end, though. I think the colours give a nice spring look. Thank you so much for visiting me today. I hope you have a lovely day and a great week.

  6. What a FABULOUS card . I love this. My trouble with embossing is I just can't do it. I've bought the embossing pen and tried using that on a stamp then using silver embossing powder. However it just doesnt work so I bought the versamark pad, I have the same problem . No luck At all. Arghhh I won't let it beat me though lol. xxx
