Totally Tulips

Happy Earth Day!

I am really pleased with how this card look in RL, I just can't seem to capture it here though. It is actually cream paper and the reds are deep reds, not bright. The ribbon also is more green looking but picked up yellowy here for some reason.

I did add some Shimmerz to the flowers , I tipped it to the side you can sorta see that in the picture above. Again shimmer is awesome in person!

Stamp is by Hero Arts, coloring with Copics, Angel Wings Shimmerz, Sentiment by JLK Designs, Ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

I got asked how I attach the pin backs and what I do is use 1/8" red line tape. I simply apply it to the pin back base and then press that to the back of the pin. Make sure you put it on so it is easy to open and close though or not upside down LOL! Made that mistake a couple times and while you can still use/wear the pin it is a bit awkward.

Such a pain when the cameras just don't quite capture the colors. I think it is very pretty though!
Thanks for the info on how to attach the pin!
