A Little Hello


I have to say I was sad to see the tulips in my garden go.  They have such a regal presence in the garden and seeing them in bloom confirms that Spring is here.  I created my card for the CAS challenge at Splitcoast; to use your piercing tool and for the Simon Says Stamp challenge; anything goes.  I began by masking the oval and sponging on Distress ink in blues.  I then stamped the tulips from Penny Black and coloured them using Copic Markers.  Added the sentiment then the piercing.  I like how the piercing adds a frame to the sponged area.  
Have a great week and thanks for stopping by!

Supplies:  stamps; Penny Black/ Copic markers/ piercing tool/ twine

A beautiful card. I love the use of piercing to make a frame for the tulips. Great colouring.
This coming weekend I am planting out my tulip bulbs. While your tulips are finishing flowering, mine are about to start growing - a neat circle.
Thank you for your kind comments on my blog
