I know its perhaps not usual to have tulips in blues however I just loved the colours against the white background for todays card.
I stared by stamping the Wild Tulips stamp to die for in black ink onto bright white foundation card. I then coloured it using a selection of Graphmaster alcohol pens ( sorry I lost the note with the colours on) I then coloured the background using Blue Grey 1 and 3 which gives the shaded light area behind the flowers.
I cut out the outline and the centre off the image using the dies in the Azores die form the Atlantic ocean collection by Sue Wilson. I then stamped the sentiment form my Lily of the Valley elements stamp set and cut it with the stitched flags and added a larger flag cut in iris before pacing it coming from the centre of the image.
I cut the dies in the Azores set in sky blue and backed them with bright white. I cut the centre dies in Iris, backed in white and from mounted this over the blue layers. Next I cut this shape into half and placed it across an embossed layer which I shaded with Clear Day colour cloud blending ink.
I made up the card as shown with a few mats and layers.
