This is as basic as it gets, but on a background of layers, the simple owl with the feet cut off and a small amount of sponging, looks great !
|Perfect Plum, Daffodil Delight, Wild Wasabi and Bashful Blue are the colours used in this layout.|
|Lucky Limade is the backing card with a strip of Daffodil Delight and Perfect Plum DSP. Bashful Blue DSP is cut with the top note die and the tulips were punched in Perfect Plum and Daffodil Delight.|
|Closer so you can see the layering...|
|Rich razzleberry base card, with whisper white embossed with Framed Tulips (121809). The tulips are punched form rich razzleberry and the leaves are cut from wild wasabi|
Then you can take it to the next step and depending if you have the old small oval punch that is now retired or a good eye and hand for cutting, you can achieve this by watching this video by Jackie Topia... or by watching the amazing paper flower expert Valita Designs and Fresh Folds. It is the sponging that makes the flowers what they are.
|The base card is pink pirouette, the topnote is cut from bashful blue DSP and the tulips are punched out of blushing bride and sponged with melon mambo. The leaves are cut from wild wasabi.|
|And a littler closer to see the layers of the tulips and card...|
There are many more variations on making a tulip, google it and you will be spoiled with lots of beautiful images. I hope this inspires you to dust off the owl punch and start creating or give me a call and I can order one in for you. Happy creating...
