Timeless Tulip Sketch Challenge

Today's card is inspired by a sketch challenge.  This is my entry:

The challenge comes from Freshly Made Sketches, and this is the sketch they gave us to work with this week.

My card is a direct replica of the sketch.  I used the Basket Weave Embossing Folder on the Daffodil Delight Card Stock, and I used the Stitched Rectangles to cut out the tulip.  The tulip is from Timeless Tulips and I did something slightly different with colouring the tulip - something I saw Creating with Allie use on her blog.

You start by inking up the stamp in your lighter colour (Daffodil Delight in my example), then using a sponge or dauber, gently cover the lower part of the stamp in the darker ink (I used Real Red).  When you stamp you get this gorgeous two toned effect.  I hadn't seen it done before, and I think it looks great!

The leaves and stem of the tulip are stamped in Garden Green ink, and that is all there is to it - I did use dimensionals for the tulip.

Feel free to click here and go to the challenge, then you can see the next blog.

The products I've used are listed below.
