DCBD #142

The kids are back in school, yippee!  This is great but my 2 1/2 year old doesn't want to be by herself at all now and she thinks that the house is too quite.  Hopefully she will adjust quickly so I can get caught up on many things. 

This weeks DCBD challenge is a color challenge.  As soon as I saw the colors I knew that I wanted to use a tulip image.  DCBD142 DCBD 142 I love when I find alternate ways to use something.  I had left my paper piercing template out on my desk after piercing the chocolate chip piece and somehow I managed to get a slight impression on a piece of computer paper and the light bulb went off.  I took my empressor and used the plastic template like a classy brass template and love the results.  I then just masked the edges and stamped in the recessed part.  To create the coloring on the tulips I first inked up the flower with regal rose and then I took my rose red marker and highlighted/colored all of the whimsy lines and dots.  I really like the way it turned out.
