Originally, I was playing with a faux watercolor idea and some stamped images, but things weren't working out as I planned. (I think I need to spend a little of my spring break time "playing" around with various watercolor techniques.) This tulip image I've had sitting on my desk (probably since last spring) caught my eye. It's a digi image from Power Poppy called Tulips in a Hobnail Pitcher. Marcella Hawley has gorgeous illustrations and I appreciate that she offers stamps and digital images on her site. I pulled out my blender pen and began coloring with the Crushed Curry ink instead of stamping. Keeping with using ink colors (rather than Copics) I substituted Lucky Limeaid for the leaves and stems and added some Rich Razzleberry for dimension and depth in the greenery as well as the inside of the tulips. MFT's Label Maker stamp set was used for the sentiment. I distressed the edges and added a twine bow to complete the vintage feel of my card.
I can't wait to see what you do with this week's colours, but first, I hope you will check out the DT inspiration on the CAS Colours and Sketches Blog!
