Spring Tulips


Hi everyone.  I had fun using a couple of stencils to make today's card.  I sponged the lattice background and then splattered with pink.  I then used the tulip stencil to add embossing paste.  Once dry, I placed the stencil back over the paste and sponged on the pink and green inks.  I used two shades of pink to give a graduation of color.  The sentiment was stamped in gray ink to keep with the softer tones of this card.  The sentiment looks crooked, but it is straight in real life --- isn't it fun when the camera plays tricks on us?? :)

The soft green ink is a gift from my friend Nancy - thanks Nancy!!  She sent me this ink and also a soft coral - can't wait to give that color a try! :)

I'm entering this into the ATS&M challenge #91 - Anything Goes.

I hope you all have a wonderful Easter.  I'm in the process of making up some treat bags to give to out at our family Easter dinner on Sunday, so will be back soon to share the tags with you.
