Timeless Tulips for CAS Colours and Sketches 348

The colour challenge at CAS Colours and Sketches seemed a great opportunity to have a play with Timeless Tulips. This set was in all the Conference bags at OnStage and this is my first play with it.

First up, I created a sponged column ranging from Pear Pizzazz at the bottom, moving through to Blushing Bride and finishing with Rich Razzleberry the top. Then I stamped in the three flowers. The top two deliberately broke the sponged column a little and I used a blender pen to pull some colour over to the bits on the white background.

After stamping in the stems and leaves, I used Rich Razzleberry Stampin' Blends to add some depth of colour and shading to the flowers. A bit of clear Wink of Stella gave the leaves a bit more emphasis.

Finally, I added in the sweet wee 'Happy Birthday' from the same set. 

Timeless Tulips will be available in early January when the January-June Mini-catalogue comes out.

Update: Pleased to be chosen a Weekly Winner at CAS Colours and Sketches.
