Tulips, not from Amsterdam

The end of the month is in sight and it is the usual scramble to get all the challenges posted on time so expect a flurry of activity over the next few days. You have been warned!

The progressive freebie challenge at Imagine That came with two sets to use this time. I have gone with the tulips for my entry.

Materials used:SAM_1725(watermarked)
Imagine That Stamp digi set: Watering Can Tulips
acrylic happy birthday stamp
green and purple paper
stamping card
white card to make 15 x 15 cm card blank
stick on gems
Copic pens

I printed out the watering can onto the stamping card and coloured it with the Copic pens. I trimmed the image then matted and layered it onto purple and green paper before attaching to the card blank. I used a left over strip of purple paper to make a rosette. I stamped the birthday greeting onto card, punched it out with a circle punch and attached it to the middle of the rosette. Finally I attached two small gems to the rosette.

Thank you for dropping in. Take care.

About Pippa

I started crafting at an early age though not always successfully, my pillowcase tennis dress has, thankfully, disappeared into history. Funnily sewing is not something I enjoy! My favourite crafty activity has to be card making, especially stamping which I have been doing for over 20 years and am still a beginner, there is always something new to learn. I also enjoy knitting and crochet. I am not an artist, cannot even draw a straight line with a ruler, but I love colouring in, which is why stamping appeals so much. I am married, have recently retired from being a part time HLTA at a local village primary school, have two grown up daughters, both married and a mad cat called Finnegan. That, in a nutshell, is me.
