Pressed Watercolored Tulips

My card today is one I was going to originally use as an entry for Gina's DT Challenge but then decided against it. Idon't know... I'm just weird like that. LOL I used Melanie Muenchinger's, "Pressed Flowers" for my main images. I LOVE that you can use these stamps and grab your Memento markers and just blend your colors right on the stamp before stamping them. I was hoping it would look a bit "water-colored" so I didn't attempt to make the coloring solid. The pink tulips I had to be sure and lightly color the edges of the stamp or y0u wouldn't have realized it was a tulip with just the ink at the bottom... hee hee. I use two different Cuttlebug embossing folders. One on the right side of the card and the other side was embossed prior to layering it on the left. I decided to steal Gina K's idea of using a button at the end of the ribbon and then to bring out the embossed leaves on the right, I drew my own leaf and cut it out to stamp my sentiment on. I really like the card so I'm not sure why I didn't enter it, but then again... my wonderful friend and CSS Alumni buddy, Jennie Harper, was the winner and trust me... she WILL ROCK the new stamp sets and show you some fabulous creations, that I am sure of!!!! Make sure to look for her work.... you will truly love her designs!!! Great job, Jennie!!! Woot Woot! Have a great day!!! *smile* Signature
