The photo reminded me of a Penny Black stamp called Winter Trails that I thought would be a perfect background for this card so I pulled it out.
Using my Misti and some Versa Fine ink in lavender I stamped the background image. I added clear powder and heat embossed. When it was cool I added various inks to create a sky and some background fields. Because I had let the stamp float off the edge of cs so that the snowy footprints wouldn’t show up. Once I had polished off the inks from the image I cut it down and added it to the card front. Taking my tulip die from Holland I cut out the tulips, once in green and once in pink. I glued the pink flowers over the top of the green and cut away all the rest. Using a pencil and some water I added some definition to the flowers. Added some pop dots behind some and glued the rest flat to the scene piece. To get the illusion of more tulips I took a couple of gel pens and added dots in the background. Not sure I should have done this but too late now. I’ll add a sentiment when I decide for what occasion it will be used.
