The colours, YELLOW and GREEN, are from this week's Less is More - LIM#214 - so fresh. I'm so glad I got to make a card for the challenge. The layout is based on the sketch from Retro Sketches - RS#156. I adore tulips, such simple yet elegant flowers and I do like this stamp. I stamped onto white card, coloured the image with Copics and then spent a while fussy cutting it out - so worth it! I embossed a panel of white card, cut it down and adhered some design paper behind. I cut a length of citrus twine and put this behind the image which I adhered with dimensional gel. I finished the front with some yellow enamel dots and a die cut sentiment. To make the sentiment I die cut two green and one black, and slightly offset the black die cut to create a shadow effect (seen this technique on quite a few cards). On the inside is a mat of green card and on the white panel I stamped another bunch of tulips in pale grey and added a touch of colour to the blooms.
I added a touch of sparkle to the tulips with my Wink of Stella brush - you can't really see it in the photo, but it is very pretty!
Last night, Jonathan and I went to Northville High School to see a Choir Concert. The 7th, 8th Grade and senior school choirs were all performing - it was a super evening. Kathryn goes up to the High School in September and one of her electives is Varsity Choir, she actually got a letter from the school encouraging her to pick Choir! There were a couple of spectacular singers in the High School section. Kathryn is really keen to get there! That's all for now. See you soon.
