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
