Love Is Kindness



 This was the first time I have inked up this stamp - I love tulips and have recently seen bundles of them for sale in stores! I have resisted buying any yet - but will probably be making a purchase soon!  Spring is coming - we know that - although it's another cold day here in Ohio! I have actually seen a few robins hopping around in the snow! So yes, spring is on it's way! 

Anyway, my card today was based on the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches      I just flipped it upside down!  
 

I colored the tulips with blendabilties - don't be afraid of them! They are so much fun to use -  really you can't go wrong!  The color lifter comes to the rescue for perfect blending and to lift color if too much color was added! I love the color lifter! 

I sponged some crumb cake ink on the Typeset designer Paper and around the tulip image - then added some very light specks using my favorite stamp from Gorgeous Grunge.  
I used the Paper Piercing tool to poke two small holes on either side of the tulip bundle and threaded a small piece of linen thread through them - and added a bow.

  1. Love your card Laura. I'm a sucker for the vintage look. We made your cute "A Happy Thing" Bird card (same type look) at my M&T earlier this week. All the ladies loved it. I hope you don't mind. I'll likely be casing this wonderful card too! Thank You!
