Flowering Tulips for As You See It Challenge #270

flowering tulips for aysi #270

 Welcome to another As You See It Challenge sample today! This time our challenge is a Theme Challenge, with the theme of Spring Flowers. And when I think of spring flowers, tulips are the first image that 'springs' to mind! (See what I did there?) Although I've used the Tulip Dies from this bundle, this was the first time I inked up the Flowering Tulips Photopolymer stamp set. a two step stamping process set. I decided to go with a purple/dark green palette using Gorgeous Grape, Highland Heather and Mossy Meadow. The Flowering Fields Designer Series Paper has one design with a watercoloured purple wash so I used it as a background.

Here's the Challenge Banner:

Here's how my sample turned out:

  • On a Mossy Meadow card base, I added a piece of the Flowering Fields DSP.
  • I stamped the larger dark outline of the tulips first in Gorgeous Grape ink. I use the dark ink first because it is so much easier to then line up the smaller inner filler stamp using a lighter ink, Highland Heather. Not only can you see through the lighter ink more easily, but also the dark ink is easier to see as you're looking through the stamp and find matching points to line up with.
  • I stamped the stems and leaves in Mossy Meadow, using both large and small leaf images.
  • I die cut the image layer using the Stitched with Whimsy dies to add the border.
  • The sentiment is from the stamp set as well, and I die cut it using the stitched scalloped circle die from the Tasteful Labels dies.
  • I had a piece of Mossy Meadow Braided Linen Trim that was retired that I used to add a bow above the sentiment. I also added the Brushed Brass Butterfly embellishments.

  1. Love it, Heather! My fave colors, even, lol. And I always forget to use those Whimsy dies, such a fun detail!

  2. So springy, Heather! Wish you were able to join us at the retreat in Sorrento this weekend. I miss our rare opportunities to stamp together.

  3. Beautiful Heather! I love tulips and purple is one of my favourite colours too! I love the watercoloured border panel behind and whimsy stitched detail; just lovely!

  4. Thanks for your comments Heather, Amy and Joanne! You are all so sweet! Amy, I miss you too!

  5. Heather - I am loving this card. First you used my second favorite flower of spring and then busted out the purple and green. Two of my favorite colors. The touch of black really grounds the card!


I love to read your comments and get to know you better! Thanks for adding one!
