Thinking Tulips

It's that time again! We have a new mixed media challenge over on SCS. This week, Birgit has challenged us to make brightly colored tulips with our mixed media supplies. We've had about a week of dreary grey skies and very little rain, so I was ready for pretty flowers and bright colors.

I took a piece of mixed media paper from my Canson pad, wet it with water, then sprayed over Dylusions lemon zest and funky fuschia. I dried it and repeated. After it was thoroughly dry, I splatter water over the piece to create those beautiful tonal dots. 

I stamped Gina K Designs tulips and sentiment in 3 colors of distress ink on cream cardstock. I mounted that on a bright pink piece of cardstock, punched a little notch to hold the twine wrap and bow. This was mounted on foam to give lovely dimension. I stamped the floral border with Versamark and heat embossed with clear powder. Just couldn't resist some stacked sequins with a little rhinestone on top.

I hope you'll take a few minutes to play this weekend - you deserve some fun! Thanks for stopping by and leaving a note, especially if you have a question. Enjoy!
