Say it with tulips

Hello every one we are on this months challenge which is say it with flowers I really enjoyed doing this so come along and see how I created this piece

I used
Spellbinder die /clarity gelli card /clarity the other card /pinflair glue gell
Grunge paste / clarity stencil brushes and make up sponge
masking tape /clarity tulip stencil/ and triangle stencil from clarity club
Distress ink pads pine needles / bundle sage /spun sugar / worn lipstick /barn door aged mahogany /Antique linen  /mustard seed
/clarity dandelion stamp from members club /fox glove members club
lets get started

Cut your die first using clarity gelli card felt this was stronger fix stencil to die cut then using a piece of masking tape cover where your stalks would go on to the lacy edge apply your grunge paste then allow to dry completely

Fix your stencil back over dry grunge paste apply sun sugar then worn lipstick then when satisfied with this add barn door at he base then aged mahogany till you have right depth
same with the leafs and stalk add your lightest colour buy up the darker from the bottom leaving bit lighter on the ends little bit of the red got on my leafs here but felt this made it
then with different parts masked of with notelets I used the dandelion clock in aged mahogany to added texture  then with the pine needles I used the foxglove stamp to add texture to the leafs
with copiers paper I drew  around the in side of the die cut out the middle to use this as my mask then with antique linen and clarity brush I gave the bottom of the flowers gave a shadow
added mask to clarity other card using mustard seed  went all over with stencil brush /then with bundled sage and the brush diagonal went down every other row till I was happy then I turned the stencil around just one part around stuck down then went over with mustard seed again
till I got this effect which I liked I added this to black card then with pin flair glue gell added my tulips so they stood out
hope you enjoyed this as much as I did come see my blog again for the next entry xx

Peace on Earth

Hello everyone this is my second instalment for this month Christmas story hope you enjoy
Clarity theother card /black card
Clarity chain words/ candle /stencil wreath /stencil sun
Distress ink pad mustard seed /bundle sage / forest green/ red door /spiced marmalade / aged mahogany
Adirondak Pitch black
copier paper /promarkers /masking tape
notlets for masks / clarity stencil brushes /make up sponges
Lets make a start

 Put your stencil in place with masking tape using sponge alternate the bundle sage with the red door colour trying to be careful not to overlap the colours then at the bases of the the branches use forest green and aged mahogany  
 till you are satisfied with the outcome
 remove stencil stamp candle then mask
 with copier paper tried to draw the best I could on the edges of the wreath the cut out  the middle so could use this as my mask for the sun
 my next part was a happy mistake I had started to use the stencil but it moved so decided to carry on the turn the sun stencil put another colour in I felt it made this so I started with mustard seed and stencil brush then move the stencil so I could colour the while did this with spiced marmalade felt this added to it then I used promarkers to colour candle then added my chain words with the black ink pad hope you have enjoyed this as much as I have making this thanks for coming
