Tulips Card, Blending with copics

I don't get a chance to make cards very often but I find that when I do it's always a fun time and I especially enjoy this time if I've been inspired. Zoe from 'Make it Colourful' was my inspiration this week with her new challenge to blend blue and purple together. As I'm still learning how to use my copics this challenge seemed perfect and as soon as I read about it, I knew the digi that I was going to use.

Patti G. had just released a new line that she had been working on and had just announced they were available in her etsy store. So many cute ones to choose from but I was heading there to get my hands on her delightful vase of tulips. I'd seen the image in colour on an amazing card that her sister Sandi had made for their mother.

So now I had the colour challenge, digi and all that was left was to find a sketch that I could use to help me put something together. I didn't have far to look as I know that Priscilla Styles 'Midnight Madness' challenge is always so rewarding. The sketch this week is great with a choice of 2 different levels to pick from.

The card info:
  • Digital tulips in vase from Patti G.
  • Copic: tulips;BV13,V09,V17,B93 leaves;YG03,YG06,YG63,YG97 vase;B000,E41,C4
  • Digital paper (purple) designed by SG_Refresh_DMI_12x12_Sherbet
  • Pearls, coat hanger, coloured string, gold heart and tags from my stash.

    I'm entering the following challenges:
  • Make is Colourful - Challenge #5 – Blend Blue and Purple Together
  • Patti's Creations - Challenge #13 - Birthday for a Mother
