Bright tulips for a rainy day/week....
Well I don't usually do 2 posts in one day but its raining and has been raining for DAYS!!!!! I think we have had more rain in the last 3/4 days than we have had in the last 3/4 years.
We did get out for a good long walk before the rain settled in for the day this am and puppy and I got a short walk yesterday afternoon but puppy is restless, we even managed to shoot off some fore works last evening between some light showers.....
But it does make for some good crafting time (though I should do some house work...) - prior to today I have spent my time between coloring and working on my DD's lockerhook rug, so today I decided it was time to get a few cards made.
This first card is for the new release challenge over at Flourishes - www.flourishes.org/blog/ you may want to check it out because if you play along you could win this months entire release!!!!
I used one of my newer stamp sets from Flourishes and colored it with prismacolor pencils. I love tulips - especially the red and orange ones, sadly they don't grow well here in NW Florida (too hot).
I paired them up with some red DP that has some orange swirls in it and added base cardstock, doily layer and ribbon in blue to match how I colored the vase. The blue is a brighter turquoise blue and it was hard to match. I also added some pearl drops with a tulip fabric pen and some flowers that were white until I inked them up and spritzed them with water.
All in all it is a bright and cheery card for this rainy day :)
Have a great weekend!!!! I work the next 2 night but will have something to show you tomorrow and maybe sunday too :)
