This Tulips set is FANTASTIC. I have to tell you I really do love this new set and have several ideas in my head to get out onto paper. I stamped the image onto classic white cardstock using memento tuxedo black ink.
My tulips are colored using copic collections:



Once colored I cut around the image and popped it up on dimensionals. Grabbed the Spellbinders Romantic Rectangles for the frame shape using our Color Made Easy Sunflower collection paper.

The designer paper is from My Minds Eye Lavender collection. Added a white layer with the smaller one in the set that I added some white crochet ribbon to and our Color Made Easy Sunflower antique gold too. Then my sentiment is stamped onto classic white cardstock again using memento tuxedo black ink, then die cut out using our Pierfectly Pierced Classic Window die. Sponged the yellow ink on before I removed the die and added a few snow white pearls. Voila, very springy and fresh. I do love how this turned out.

Ok, it's time to head on over and see the fresh picked beauties that our ever-so-talented design team created with our new Tulips for Friends set!
