I am once again playing with this beautiful Framed Tulip from Art Neko. You may remember the card I did a week ago using this stamp, done in a very different way from this card.

I set my stamp up in my Misti, something I always do when I use foam mounted stamps. I can easily ensure the stamp is straight by using the grid on the Misti lid.

 For this card I again coloured my stamp and spritzed with water before stamping. To add further dimension to the tulip I added more colour to the stamp but did not spritz with water before stamping. Once that was done, I taped off the left corner area and sponged on the yellow, going up the frame slightly. I then put the card back in my Misti and stamped the birthday greeting partially in and out of the frame. A few sequins, just because I like a bit of sparkle, but I decided I wanted a bit more, so I added some Wink of Stella to the tulip petals.  It is very pretty in real life.

  1. This tulip brings back memories of the beautiful purple tulips my Grandmother used to have in her garden. I love the purple ones and your card is so pretty. The stamp is so detailed too; it looks so real.

  2. Such a pretty stamp and color combination.
