Good morning! Today I have a pretty Spring floral card to share with you. I think everyone is feeling a little cabin fever and is ready for Spring! The tulip image is from the New Breath of Spring stamp set from JustRite. The Breath of Spring stamp set includes these 4 beautiful floral Designer Center images, Lily of the Valley, Violets, Daffodils and Tulips and 4 Interchangeable Borders. The Breath of Spring stamp set fits the 2-1/4'' x 3-1/16'' Oval Stamper. Here is a close up of the stamp image and border that I used.I stamped the center image of the tulips onto white cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink from Tsukineko and then I colored the image with Copic markers. After the image was colored then I used the Classic Ovals Small S4-112 die template from Spellbinders™ and the Wizard™ to cut/emboss the oval. I wanted to airbrush around the outside of the image so I created a mask. To create a mask stamp the image onto some printer paper, cut the image out and apply some 2-way glue to the back of the image and wait for the glue to dry. The glue will still be tacky enough to hold the image in place. Then airbrush.Here is the image after airbrushing.I stamped the border with Dusty Concord ink from Ranger, cut/embossed the oval using Classic Oval Large S4-110 die templates from Spellbinder™ and inked the edges. For the decorative mat behind the images I cut/embossed Labels Four S4-190 and Fancy Tags S4-235 die templates from Spellbinders™. I also airbrushed a little on the tags. For the background I started with a white piece of cardstock and I embossed it using the Tulips Impressabilities™ I2-1008. I left the Impressability in place and then airbrushed with Copic markers. For a finishing touch I added some tiny pink rhinestones using Gem-Tac from Beacon Adhesives and some sheer aqua ribbon using Fabri-Tac from Beacon Adhesive. Here is a close up of the stamped image.
