Indigoblu Challenge - Spring Blossoms

This is my entry for the April, 2014 Indigoblu challenge - Spring Blossoms.

Tulips herald Spring therefore this stamp seemed the obvious choice for this Challenge.  To start with I stamped the Tulip with Gellato's then over stamped it with Watering Can Archival ink. I then masked off the Tulip and randomly stamped Best Wishes for the background using blended Gelato's.  This was then distressed around the edges and layered it onto black card giving a wide frame.  This was then layered onto yellow Bazill Basics and edged this by hand with a black pen.  The whole thing was then layered onto a marble background made with shaving foam and spray inks.

I stamped Spring onto the same marble background and cut out a tag shape which was attached to the top of the card.  I tried a ribbon bow on the tag but it seemed too fussy therefore I opted for a blob of glue covered with black Distress Glitter (I love Distress Glitter!) to give the appearance of a brad fastening the tag to the card.

All was layered onto cream card to finish off.  Take a look at the Indigoblu Blog as there is some lovely DT inspiration.
