Ok, well you may be planting your tulip bulbs at the moment, but otherwise, tulips are a bit thin on the ground at the moment. However, I have been Paint Fusioning again as it is another friend's birthday - and you may have guessed that there are tulips are involved. But, before I go into all that, I want to tell you what my lovely friends did to me this morning. We met up for a late breakfast to celebrate, and as my friend was opening my present to her, she decided to tell people on the next table how clever I am, and how they all love the cards and presents I make. She proceeded to show them the presents, and insist I give them my business card. Another friend then showed them the card I had just completed on commision for her!! The poor ladies!! I was very embarrassed - but it was very sweet of my friends to do that!!
Anyway, back to the subject in hand - and here we have my tulips in all their glory.
I struggled with the leaves, in the same way as I did for the poppies, but perservered and eventually found a way that I could paint them and be happy!! I used EcoGreen Acrylic Paint in Zucchini and Lime, and stamped and painted them onto watercolour card. For the tulips I used Pebeo Cherry and EcoGreen Sunflower. The card was edged with Barn Door and Pine Needles Distress Inks, and embossed with gold. A spritz of gold Spray and Sparkle finished it all off.
As ever when I do these gifts, I also painted a candle, coasters and mirror frame.
I have now been asked to make several sets of coasters, a candle and a mirror for my friends to give to other people for Christmas!! Looks like I shall be fusioning away for a while!!! Be warned!!!
