This week the challenge was to use no words or sentiments on the card, but to let the image send the message. I am so excited for spring, so I chose a happy little tulip stamp from an old Hero Arts set I have had for many years. It is a set of 4 spring flower images:
I have not used it for a very long time, but still love the images. I chose the tulips for my CAS challenge card because it not only said "Spring" to me, but "Happy Mother's Day" to my MIL. I always try to do a tulip card of some sort for her since she is Dutch. For the card, I chose four different embossing folders and ran white CS through them in my cuttlebug, and cut each one into four equal pieces. I then patch worked them onto a white card base. I stamped the tulip image three times..once on red, once on green, and once on yellow. I then enhanced the image with TH markers and blended and shaded. I fussy cut out portions and put it all together on a Martha Stewart doily. This is the card....
I hope you enjoy, and I hope you check out the challenge at SCS, and join in the fun. I also challenge you to pull out an old stamp or two and revisit them....sometimes our stamping styles and knowledge has changed drastically over the years of creating, and all of a sudden we have a new perspective on an old stamp.
Have a wonderful week, and if you stopped by today, please take a quick moment to say Hi in the comments. I love to know who visited!
