Tulips x Two

One of the groups I am in had a mystery image swap.
The tulips were the mystery image!
I decided to make both of mine into cards, one to send to my partner and one I sent back to the lady who had stamped the images - a little thank you for taking the time to do so.

For this first card I used a base of shimmer pinkish-red. I colored my image with Copic Markers G99 & G94 for the leaves and stems, G00 was used for the sky/background and then R22, R32 and RV34 for the flowers. I carefully trimmed it and then I adhered it to layer of Shaving Cream paper I had made who knows how long ago and had already put a strip of butterfly ribbon across. I decided to cut the bottom with my Paper Shapers and then adhered it to the card base.

For this one I used a Copic Background paper I had made before (should be a tut postes soon on FCD about this and I will link you when it is ready) I colored this image with the same leaves and sky/background colors as before but the flowers are BV00 & BV02. The ribbon is from Really Reasonable Ribbon and then I added 3 self stick pearls to it under the bow.

I admit this one was hard to send off to my partner as I really liked how it turned out!
