Tulips for Spring

Good Evening Crafty Friend, Followers and Visitors

Sunday already, the weeks are surely flying by.  Well today is my 2nd blog anniversary, time sure has flown since I started 2 years ago.  I have been inspired by so many of my blogging friends and fabulous crafters.  Today I am showing a card I made using Sheena Douglass' Paint Fusion stamps and technique which is a very firm favourite with me and she sure has inspired me too.  I hope you like my little card!


8 x 8 cream scalloped card
First layer is from stash which I have matted Core'dinations card embossed with Die'sire Embossing folder Regal Swirl.
The topper is mount board which I have painted and distressed by painting board with PVA and emulsion paint and heating to get the crackle.
Using Sheena Douglass' Paint Fusion Tulip Stamp I have paint fusioned with Pebeo Acrylic Paints
I sprayed with Crafter's Companion Spray and Sparkle Iridescent spray then once dry dusted with PanPastels Dairylade Yellow.
I have used PanPastels Burnt Sienna on the doily and then matted this onto the embossed card.
To finish off I have cut out butterflies using First Edition Boho paper pack with Spellbinder Les Papillion 2, added gems to the 4 corners of the doily, made a bow and added a floral button to the bow


Thank you for stopping by Today
Hugs xxxxx
