Terrific Tulips

We are all waiting for the spring bulbs to break through the ground and bloom with full colour signalling warmer weather is on its way. For my card I kept it to white and black to show the beauty of the tulip stamp. The tulip is from Spring is in the Air and the sentiment is a favourite of mine from Loving Sentiments. I'd love this tulip stamp larger and making into a wallpaper. Some how I don't think I could afford it.
This is an 8x8 card and for the background I stamped the Tulip with Versafine black onyx onto an A4 piece of white card. I like the Versafine ink as it gives a lovely crisp image. The stamped card was cut to size and mounted onto black. With the left over card I trimmed to make a border strip. The Floral Oval Nestabilitie is one of my most used and the sentiment fits beautifully. I stamped it onto white, trimmed off the edging then cut it again out of black and glued them together. Thanks for stopping by Debbie

  3. This is gorgeous, Debbie! I love the black and white together, very elegant and formal looking, but the flowers make it pretty and feminine. I need to get more of the sentiments stamps like the one you used.

  5. This is lovely - so elegant & clean with a real classiness. The way you have made a background for the sentiment & then framed it with the black ornate die-cut really ties the two together for the ornate die-cut edging echoes the frilliness of the tulip petals. I almost missed this post - glad I stumbled onto it.
