Tulips in Blue

Evening Everyone,
I hope that you have all had a wonderful weekend.
I have been trying to catch up with some of the more mundane and basic bits of card making, namely matching cards to envelopes and adding inserts. Boring but necessary especially if you want to have a card ready for any occasion.
I did get to play a little bit, and I am now officially in love with a new stamp.
This is made using the fabulous FRS216 Field of Tulips from Woodware. It is a lovely big stamp, which stamps and embosses beautifully.
I got the idea for this style of card from one that Louise had made for the shop when I was staying at SirStampalot.
The base, and layers for the card are made using a Grand Nestie.
I stamped and embossed the tulips onto watercolour card and then painted the image using distress inks.
The blue background card has been created using a Magnolia swirl stamp.  This has been stamped and embossed using versamark and white embossing powder and then distress ink has been sponged over it.
The pink background paper is from my stash, and the greeting, flower and swirls were cut out with various dies.
I added some dots to the image using a white Gelly Roll glaze pen.
I wonder how busy we will be at work tomorrow?
I'm afraid I don't watch the news or read the paper if I'm not at work so I guess I will find out what is going on in the world tomorrow.
Off to bed now.
