Papertrey Ink Tag Sale 8 birthday card

Blog-hop-logo

Hello everyone,

Just a quick post today because I don't want to miss this month's Papertrey Ink Blog Hop. Nichole gave us a wonderful quatrefoil inspiration photo this month


Blog Hop Inspiration

and I took inspiration from the pattern and some of the colours to come up  with this card



I  stamped some watercolour paper with the quatrefoil stamp and then embossed it in clear embossing powder before watercolouring over the top to give a gradient of colour, This was cut out with Tag Sale 8. I die cut and stamped the tulip from Flower Fusion #3 in pink and then stamped again using red ink to give a depth to the colour, before mounting the flower onto the tag. The background flourish was embossed with a Cuttlebug folder, and the sentiment banner and some ribbon finished it off.

I'd like to enter this into




Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the hop.

Hugs

  1. Carol, you made a beautiful card using your inspiration photo. Tulips are my favorite flower and yours is just adorable with the striped stem and leaves.
    I'll be so happy to see them blooming outdoors.
