Tulips For Friends



I was inspired by the colorful florals for the current color palette for the Card Concept Challenge and I'm also playing along with the Freshly Made Sketches Challenge - a really fabulous layout brought to us by Jen T.  Though the Flourishes stamp company no longer exists, I'm still loving their floral designs and pulled out this Tulips For Friends set.  I started with watercoloring the BG using Peacock Feathers and Squeezed Lemonade distress inks.  I had this leftover cut file from X-Press It Blending Card paper and stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink
before coloring with Copics.  The image is popped with foam tape.  The striped vellum paper is from SU's Winter Wonderland pack.  

I'm recuperating today from a vomiting bug that hit me last
evening.  Not a fun night!  I'm staying off work today...laying low and trying to get my strength back.  Thanks so much for stopping by...
