Razzleberry Tulip

This card is a case of one I saw on the Demo side of the Stampin' Up! site and last night I was finally able to give it my spin!

The card base is Rich Razzleberry Textured cardstock. I like to use that on occasion when it will show more than just a basic outside layer. The set used was Flores Suaves which is in the Spanish version of the SU! Catalog. The set is available to anyone, just not featured in the regular IB&C. The TopNote was cut from Naturals Ivory cardstock. It has a very light background all over it done by using the script, butterfly & bee images and Creamy Caramel ink. Stamp each image off once, then onto the cardstock. Full strength was just too dark-I tried it first that way! Sponge the edges lightly too with Creamy Caramel. Next, on another piece of Naturals Ivory, stamp the tulip image with Stazon Jet Black Ink. Color with markers: Rich Razzleberry for the flower, and Always Artichoke for the stem. The markers are fairly dark, but I didn't think a blender pen & ink would be dark enough. To lighten in areas, use a blender pen and remove a little ink. Cut the tulip out and attach with dimensionals (on the flower & leaf). Tie a Kraft Taffeta ribbon around the bottom. Lastly, add a saying stamped in Rich Razzleberry & punched with the Large Oval, layered on a Razzleberry Scallop Oval. Lots of sayings would work on this, as would a number of different colors! Give it a shot!!
