spring flowers (by Veronica)



First a very simple card using the spring bird tulip  stamps .
.

The tulips were stamped in black versafine ink and coloured with watercolour pencils. Background sqaure card was colopured with peeled paint distress ink using a brush, then the small tulip stamp stamped randomly in the same ink. The mat is gold mirri card, which doesn't show up as gold on the scanner.
This one was a bit more complicated, but still quite a quick card.
I die cut a circle of white card and stamped the tulips again in versafine, then masked them off with masking fluid; stamped the daffodils from spring bird daffodil to each side of the tulips, then rubbed off the masking fluid.
Coloured the tulips first using plenty of colour, then the daffodils using less colour.
A die cut green scalloped circle matt, and the corner swirls from breath of spring stamped onto the corners of the card blank using peeled paint distress ink to finish it off.

Both card blanks are 6" square, so easy to post

  4. I love them both. The background on the tulip card is so clever, but card No 2 is my favourite.

  5. I love the tulips on their own with their beautiful complementary background Veronica, and then the tulips and daffodils combined which look fabulous, and I love those pretty corners too. x
