It’s mid-May and my tulips are finally blooming in my yard! I think this is the latest that they have ever bloomed, usually I have tulips by Easter. I’m happy to see them come up and they are so beautiful to look at, I was inspired to pull out my Blessed Easter stamp and use the tulips to create this card.
I used a fabulous new product on this card called Blendabilities. They are a new alcohol based marker from Stampin’ Up! Because these markers are alcohol based you can blend several shades of color together and get beautiful looking results! They come in a pack of three shades of a light, medium, and dark color to create beautiful depth and dimension on your stamped images. I used the Rich Razzleberry and Old Olive assortment on my card. It is important that you use the Memento Ink Pad for stamping your images so that your images don’t bleed when you use the alcohol markers.
The last thing I’d like to point out is that the Blendabilities Markers are also great for adding color to your embellishments. The beautiful ribbon you see on the top of the tag was actually a piece of whisper white taffeta ribbon colored with the medium shade of Old Olive Blendabilities. The ribbon took the color beautifully and it actually looks like it was always that shade of green!
