Creative Blooms Challenge

Today I have a card for the Creative Blooms Challenge.   As always I did the color challenge and the sketch challenge together.
Here is the sketch challenge:
Here is the color challenge:

Here is the card I created:
This is a very simple card.  I started out by cutting strips of Black Licorice, Pool Play and River Stone Cardstock.  I stamped the Tulip ATS on the strip of Pool Play Cardstock.  I then stamped the the image on River Stone , Lemon Grass, and Whip Cream Cardstock.  I then cut and paper pieced these.  The tulips, I actually colored with a Q-tip using Lemon Drop ink and dragged the color to get the darker at the bottom and lighter on the top.
To finish off the card, I wrapped, Journey Twine- Black Licorice around the Pool Play strip and popped this piece up on the piece of Black Licorice Cardstock.  I stamped everything on the card with Black Licorice Ink.  Enjoy!
I have entered this card in the challenge at Art Impressions Blog also.


  1. So fun! Love the colors and the simple layout (if I do say so myself). It helps put the focus TOTALLY on the image and sentiment. Love it! Thanks for playing in the Creative Blooms Journey color and sketch challenge. :)
