So Sunday

I've been busy making cards for some challenges this weekend and today's offering is for Addicted To Stamps And More's photo inspiration. And such a delicious photo too! You probably know I love using quotes and there's also tulips involved - I couldn't resist!

Here's my card:

I started by picking up on that pretty green from the table and stencilled a little background colour. Next I added my quote, using the misti to get a good deep clear stamping. I love this quote as it pretty much sums up why I craft and definitely is appropriate to my family as none of them are even remotely interested in what I do and think I'm just a bit bonkers and anti-social spending so much time with paper and ink.

I decided to just add the one tulip positioned near the quote and coloured it using my trusty promarkers - I've had them for ever and they still keep going.

Stamps: Penny Black, a bunch; Bee Crafty, wordage
Inks: SU, pistachio pudding; Memento, tuxedo black
Promarkers: tulip yellow, marsh green
Stencil: Memory Box, texture mesh

Huge thanks for visiting today, your time is really appreciated.  And keep crafting!
