Decided to do another card for PSC53D: Birds & Blooms challenge by Perfect Sentiments.

These tulips are fun to work with to try and give them a stained-glass feeling.


  • Base paper from DCWV The Mariposa stack.
  • Basic green stock on top of that which was embossed using Victoria embossing folder for the Cuttlebug.
  • Basic purple paper was inked around the edges using Cape Cod of Swell Color Box Cat's Eyes ink.
  • Jet Black Staz-on ink for impression of Tulips.
  • Tulips from Inky Antics.
  • Coloring of Tulips done with Glazed Dimensions by The Stencil Collection. Some of the glaze give the tulips a glassy, 3-D effect.  The leaves are done with a metallic glaze.
  • Basic brown ribbon.
  • Lady Bug and Bee brads on green paper.
  • Forest Green Staz-on ink for sentiment.
  • Sentiment is from the Tulip stamp set.
  • Squeezed Lemonade distressed ink by Tim Holtz.
  • Sentiment and Green background paper were trimmed using Victorian Fiskars paper edger scissors.
  • Sentiment adhered with pop dots.

Lots of fun playing with this one!
