Happy Day Tulips

I am back with another spring card for the March CAS Watercolour challenge. There are new projects from the design team also so head over and check them out here: CAS Watercolour March reminder

I used tulips on my first card for the challenge and here I am back again with another tulip card but the look is different. I stamped the image in versafine onyx black ink on hot pressed watercolour then used Peerless watercolour paints to fill the scene. I wasn’t overly careful to stay inside the lines or even fill the shapes. When all the tulips and leaves were dry I added some aqua paint all around then keeping the watermarks as part of the design to suggest clouds. I did a little stamp surgery to create a shorter sentiment from one of the ‘happy thoughts’ stamps.

I hope you will check out the cards the design team made and also the entries in the challenge so far. Then I know you will be so inspired you will add one of your own ‘spring’ cards.
