FROM THE SCRAP DRAWER
Inspiration for this card came from Down Under at Edna's blog with her woven paper strips. What a great way to use up some of my scraps!
After stamping the tulip image and coloring it in, I added a few subtle embellishments. First, I traced along the top edges of the petals with a red Gelly Roll pen and used some tiny black gems for the stamens. The red metallic bow added a bit more glimmer. Then I stamped the word "Love" below the image and used a black marker to add a few dots in the opposite corners. Next, the image was taped onto the red cs and attached to the card with dimensionals. Finally, I placed a row of deep red gems alongside and one larger one at the bottom right.
This would make a nice Valentine--thanks Edna!
