I used the sketch from Verve March-week 1. It had cool layers.
I did the Tulip background with Spellbinders Impressabilities and distress inks. It was something different for me but I loved the look of it when done. I adhered a white paper and the impressabilites with small tape on the side. this helped it stay in place. I started with aged mahagony distress ink and the distress foam tool. I inked it all the way. after which i inked it with broken china, it looks almost purple in some spots, and then with wild honey. I removed the tulip impressabilites and this is what was left. I cut it according to the sketch and distressed the edges with antique linen. Tulips always make me think happy thoughts and that spring is here.
I added some icy stickles to the frame, the inside has been stamped with aged mahagony. love that pattern. Added a ribbon and some twine to give it more dimension. Flowers have the white brad in between.
The inside is simple
