Monochromatic Tulips

Hi all and thanks for dropping by!  I am the sketch hostess this week over at Freshly Made Sketches

 I've gone with a slimline/mini slimline design and here is what I made:

I wanted to play along with the Turquoise theme at The Flower Challenge, so stamped four tulips and coloured them all slightly differently to give what is as close to a monochromatic look as I could get.  I coloured the leaves gray to add to the whimsical and modern look.

Before adhering the tulips to the card base, I sponged on some distress ink in an ombre fashion before splattering some of the same ink.  I adhered the fussy-cut tulips to the card base then splattered on some gold ink.  I then added a thin strip of cardstock and the black strip with a gold-embossed sentiment.

Finally, I finished with some gold confetti.

Thanks for visiting!  I hope you'll check out the fabulous cards made by the rest of the DT and I hope you'll play along this week.

Ink:  Amalgam (Gina K Designs) Peacock Feathers, Broken China Distress Ink, Enchanted Gold (Altenew)
Cardstock:  White, Black, Adriatic (Hero Arts), X-Press It
Accessories:  Copics, Antique Gold EP, gold confetti
