Hello Tulips

Hello Friends!  I've got a little something to share with you today. I am in the process of making cards with many of the images I colored during the 30 Day Coloring Challenge that I participated in last month. If you missed any of those posts, I have linked them all HERE.

So for today's card, I am using the panel I watercolored on Day Six of the challenge. Remember this one? I used Peerless Watercolors.

I trimmed it down a bit and matted it with patterned paper. Then adhered it to my card base. I created a dimensional element with my Mama Elephant Hello Script die, by running it thru my die cutting machine several times, on plain white card stock, and then stacking and adhering the pieces together, with the final piece being cut from some text patterned paper. I love this technique and it can be used with just about any die. After the die cut piece was dry, I adhered it to my focal panel and added a few Pretty Pink Posh sequins to finish off my card.

And that is it for me today. Thank you for dropping in! Have a great weekend.

Gorgeous! I adore what you have done to make this card, Barb. First of all, the tulips look amazing in that jar. You have selected the perfect pattern paper to mat your image onto. And the dimension of the hello with that paper you chose is perfection. I'm very excited to see how you use the images you colored. I don't mind repeating...this is a gorgeous card! :)
