A Recipe for Tulips

The As You See It Recipe for Whimsey consists of Flowers, Die Cut/Punch, Ribbon or Twine, Something Shiny and Patterned Paper.  My Flowers and Watering Can were cut with dies by Hero Arts on plain white CS, I sponged on Wild Lilac and Grass Green for the tulips and highlighted them with a white Prisma Pencil. The Watering Can was cut with Soft Stone and colored with Copics C1 & C3 and added Clear Wink of Stella to make it shiny. For the bow I used a bit of purple and white Baker’s Twine. The Patterned Paper is from the Birthday Hoot PP by Gina K Designs. The mat is Wild Lilac on a Soft Stone card base. The sentiment is from the Hero Arts My Monthly Hero Kit for January.

    1. Thanks Bonnie. Just wish I could have gotten a better picture – the picture doesn’t do it justice.

  1. This is beautiful Judy! Great job on it. I love the watering can and the shading you got on it. Pictures never seem to do our cards justice.

  2. A great take on the challenge my friend. I love how you coloured everything. So beautiful and the little bow is a lovely finishing touch.

  3. Well done, Judy. Such a lovely card from the watering can to the tulips to the patterned paper. Perfect recipe for whimsy and the challenge.

    1. Thanks Gayle. I made that card a couple of weeks ago and realized it pretty much fit the recipe, so the bow was really all I had to add.

  4. This card is lovely! The brightness of the tulips, echoed in the mat, are so cheerful. I love the way you’ve coloured up the watering can – it fairly leaps off the page, it’s so 3D looking. Thank you for joining us again at As You See It Challenge.

  5. This is such a cheery spring card, Judy! I like the way the tulips coordinate with the background paper. Well done with your colouring and highlighting! It really adds to the final result! Thanks for playing along with As You See It Challenges!

  6. What a lovely arrangement you’ve made with your tulips and watering can! I have a big one like this at home…but it’s not filled with pretty flowers like this! Thanks for sharing this with us at As You See It!
