This new stamp set, called Newspaper Tulips, came a few weeks ago from Hero Arts, and I finally had time to work with it last night. After seeing all the beautiful tulips at the bulb show last weekend, I had lots of color inspiration to work with. I decided to make a general "hello" card to post today, but I also used this stamp to make some birthday and sympathy cards. I colored the tulips with markers, and then stamped them, distressed the edges with my Distress Inks, and embossed some lines around the edge of the pink matt using my score board. I made the pink matt paper by spraying the light pink paper with Smooch Spritz Spray. The patterned paper is from My Minds Eye, and I love the 2 shades of green. The ribbon and button are from Stampin Up.
I am entering this in the Shabby Tea Room #105 Spring is Near challenge with this inspiration photo. The requirement was to use 3 of the colors in this photo and a technique called dry embossing.
