Blue Tulips

Hi guys, hope you are all okay today?  I have spent a lovely afternoon at a Copics workshop with the very talented Mel Heaton.  Gosh have I learnt loads.  It was only 2 hours but it went sooooooo fast.  I have come home with a sore shoulder, it's not fully healed from the op, from the repetitive colouring but it was a wonderful couple of hours.  THANKS MEL and thanks to The Treasury, Kidderminster the staff there are brill.

My card today was made for the Craftateers challenge and the theme is floral was my choice.

I began with a C5 plain white centura card and matted another piece of the card on but I embossed it using the tumbling leaves A4 embossing folder from crafters companion and using a brush and stormy sky distress ink I distressed the whole embossing.

I then used an edges die on either side of a navy piece of card and put two pieces of white ribbon around that before placing it on my card.

My large flower image is Tulips from Dimension Stamps which has been embossed in cosmic shimmer lapis sapphire lustre and placed onto a spellbinders die.  The large flower at the side is from Chloe's Creative Crafts which has also been embossed using the cosmic shimmer lapis embossing powder cut out and layered.  These flower stamps are in two sizes and are lovely to stamp with.

All finished off with a spellbinders flourish.

Hope you like this one.  Thanks for looking.  Take care.
