I wanted to do something with tulips but make it slightly different. So I read and reread Jo's instructions and decided to work with black card because it would already be black on the back and I wouldn't have to paint it.
I don't have the Jofy texture stamps for the tulips YET so I decided to emboss my petals in my Big Shot. This way I could use the fantastic Treasure Gold to maximum effect. So, here we go:-
1. Embossed loads of black card.
2. Cut out petals with Tulip Die (which I had forgotten that I had bought…....der, worrying).
3.Painted wooden skewers with Toad Hall and Seaweed.
4.Applied Treasure Gold..Sapphire and Royal Amethyst to petals.
5.Curled petals and assembled onto stem.
6.Used Chatsworth paper to line a box.
7.Tied tulips up with ribbon.
Enjoyed making the tulips and surprised that they weren't as fiddly as I had imagined….cos I don't have a lot of patience.
Will probably make some more and might even take my time and display them differently next time.
Fantastic idea Jo, thanks!!
