Inspired Tulip

This card is for the inspiration challenge at SCS this week. I used this planner for inspiration. This stamp set from Flourishes, called Thank You is one I ordered last week and just came in the mail yesterday.

To make the background I placed my card stock on a grid paper and used a piece of copy paper as a mask, lining it up with the grid. Then I sponged River Rock (retired SU ink) along the edge of the mask and then moved it over to do another line.

The flower was coloring with Copic makers

The self adhesive pearls were colored with Copic markers and the designer paper is from K & Company. I got the EK Flourish punch from Gina K.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have a wonderful day!
