Golden Tulips

Hi everyone.  Time for the reminder for the CAS Stencil June Challenge hosted by Linda.
I started with a watercoloured background from my stash.  It was done with Liquid Watercolour Concentrates, so is very bold and vibrant.  A tulip stencil was placed over top and taped down.  Vermark pad was pressed over the stencil, making sure to get the clear ink through all the stencil openings.  I brushed over some gold Perfect Pearls, and once the Versamark was dry, a paper towel was used to brush off all the excess powder.  The sheen of the Perfect Pearls is gorgeous, although I couldn't capture it in the photo above.  The close-up shows it much better ...

My white frame was cut smaller than the card base and it is popped up for dimension.  A sentiment was stamped in Delicata Gold ink which matches the yellow gold of the Perfect Pearls perfectly.

I hope you'll check out the challenge blog to see the new, inspiring cards from our Designers and our Guest Designer, Chrissie.

Challenge is open for another week ... come play along!
