Beate’s inspiration piece this week is a console table from Pottery Barn.  Well I couldn’t help but be inspired by that big beautiful bouquet of orange tulips.  The tulip stamp that I used is from Flourishes “Thank You” set.  One of the fun things about clear stamps like this tulip image, is that they can be bent and shaped.  So even though this tulip naturally curves off to the right (the tallest of the three tulips on the card), I was able to bend the stem to appear almost straight for one of the tulips and then even more for the third tulip in the bouquet getting it to lean to the left.  Also with some masking I was able to use just the leaf part of the image to stamp a leaf on the left side of the stems.  It looks like I have several different images.  How fun is that!  The designer paper is from Basic Grey’s “Scarlet’s Letter” collection.


Check out the cards made by the other Inspiration Challenge Team members.  Hope you can play along!
