Painted tulips

My Favorite Things is having a competition to find some Card Design Superstars so I thought I would throw a card into the ring. This one is created with stamps from the ‘Painted Prints’ stamp set. I have another post coming on Monday which explains my process using the rose stamps from the same set. I pulled this card out of that post so I could enter it in the ‘Clean & Simple’ category of the competition.

I used distress inks for all the flowers, leaves and stems then switched to versafine for the delightful sentiment from the ‘All About You’ set.


Stamps: painted prints, all about you (MFT)

Inks: dusty concord, milled lavender, forest moss, mowed lawn, abandoned coral, picked raspberry distress inks, shady lane versafine clair
Paper: cold pressed watercolour paper, olive green cardstock

    Can you tell me why you use a hot pressed paper instead of cold pressed paper?
    Love your work.

    This is beautiful…so many color variations in the leaves and the flowers are almost transluscent. ♥

    Love the card, love the fresh colours, love the sentiment. Good luck with MFT.

    What a fabulous array of tulips. They are loosely painted, but not too loose, so they have kept their shape and form beautifully, and I love the sentiment too Heather. x
