Papertrey Ink Blog Hop




This month for the Papertrey Ink Blog Hop, we were to use this beautiful photo as an inspiration piece.


I thought that these colors would look lovely for tulips, so out Tulip Time came again!


I was inspired by the colors, bits of sparkle and gold/bronze metallics, and the script font and curves of the banners.  Also, I noticed the square slate in the picture, and used an old background stamp that I had stamped in Tim Holtz Hickory Smoke onto the grey paper.


It was difficult not using a white background for the tulips, but I did it!  Such a fun challenge that pushed me out of my comfort zone with this color scheme.  Never thought about it for a spring card, but it's so pretty!

I love the weathered look of that background! Makes me think of a lovely fresh spring bouquet on a table top.
