Tulip Umbrella

This morning I have my DT card for the new Crafting From The Heart Challenge to share with you.  This fortnight we are sponsored by Dilly Beans and StampArt Designs by Kathryne.  Now, I can imagine, that given my recent declaration of love for Dilly Beans, you are expecting to see a Dilly Beans stamp on my card this week…..well, you’d be mistaken!!  As you may have gathered from the none-to-subtle post title, I’ve used Tulip Umbrella by Kathryn at Stampart Designs for my card this week, because I love red tulips and this cute little umbrella was just so tempting!! I’ve also been lucky enough to use another of Kathryne’s designs before Christmas, and I really like her style.  As usual, we have an optional theme of “Use Red” in your projects this week too, however, if you’d prefer not to stick to a theme, then anything goes…

I coloured the image using Pro-Markers – I was wary of using too much bold red for the tulips, so I used Carmine, along with a little Ruby and Crimson for shading and texture.  I added Glossy Accents to the tulips so that they looked glossy in comparison to the rest of the image.  I cut the oval shape on the Silhouette, adding the stitched border at this point too.

The papers are all from my stash – scraps and offcuts that have no names I’m afraid.  I added a little Swiss Dots embossing to the white strip.  Both the background papers and the image were mounted on 3D pads before being attached to the card.

Lastly, the sentiment was printed directly on to the cardstock base, using the Alex Brush font.

Make sure you head over to Crafting From The Heart to see what my team-mates have been up to this fortnight!  I look forward to seeing all your red themed (or not!) projects!!  Also, don’t forget that we’re “upgrading” to a weekly challenge from 3rd March….twice the fun!
