Thanks for stopping by and for all your wonderful comments. I'm honored to have you here and I truly appreciate each of you more than you know!
The card I'm sharing with you today is another I've created with the gorgeous tulips from the Love Is Kindness stamp set from Stampin' Up! Yep, it's Love Is Kindness week here this week! If you missed yesterday's watercolor card you can see it here. This time I've colored the image with Blendabilities and added in some extra dimension with paper piecing and decoupage...
Card: Coastal Cabana, Whisper White and a snippet of Very Vanilla
Ink: Memento Black
Markers: Rich Razzleberry and Wild Wasabi Blendies
Stamp Sets: Love Is Kindness and Dictionary background
Tools: Paper Snips, Stampin' Dimensionals and Basics Pearls
Create the base card by cutting a piece of Coastal Cabana card in half horizontally, folding vertically and then cutting away half of one side
Line the inside of the card with a piece of Whisper White card (I cut mine ¼" smaller than the inside) and cut another piece of Whisper White for the front panel (again mine is cut ¼" smaller). Stamp the panel in Memento Black ink with the Dictionary Background stamp and attach to the base
Stamp the tulip image from the Love Is Kindness stamp set with Memento Black ink twice onto Whisper White (you only need the flowers from the second) and once onto Very Vanilla (you only need the newspaper wrap)
Color the complete image with Wild Wasabi and Rich Razzleberry blendies (even though the flowers will be decoupaged I prefer to color them, you might not).
Using Paper Snips carefully cut out the Very Vanilla newspaper wrap, without leaving a gap. Attach to the complete image
Color the second set of flowers in the same way as the first. Carefully cut the top six out with the Paper Snips and attach to the complete image using half of a Stampin' Dimensional (I cut and attached them one at a time to make sure the right flower was used and didn't decoupage the lower, partially hidden one)
Layer the image panel onto a panel of Coastal Cabana (I cut my Coastal Cabana layer 1/8" bigger than the Whisper White) and attach to base
Complete the design with strips of Basics Pearls
