Good Evening !
We are enjoying warmer than normal temperatures in this area. Our snow has melted (yay !) and I've had a chance to get out into the gardens to start pruning and admire crocus that are blooming. We normally wait until April for this treat !
The warm weather motivated this simple card for Spring. It's a challenge for me to create cards without a 3D image, but I've been inspired by looking at the elegant cards posted at Less is More's Blog. I love creations that are 'fussy' but also appreciate Clean & Simple. At some point I would like to enter some of their challenges.
The background behind the tulip was created using the stamp kissing technique (again). I covered Impression Obsession's Solid Cover a Card with Colour Box Moss Green pigment ink. I used a flower from the Hero Art flower set CL428 and covered it with Boysenberry Colour Box pigment ink and then 'kissed' the two stamps. Using the Cover a Card stamp I then applied the image to white cardstock. Over this I stamped the tulip from the Hero Art Set CL427 and embossed with deep purple powder. I coloured the tulip a little with Prisma Pencils. I used dark plum & vibrant moss green cardstock to compliment the stamping. A little ribbon and rhinestones were added for the finishing touch.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope that you are enjoying nice weather where you live !
