Try Stamping on Tuesday

I've played along with the challenges at Try Stampin' on Tuesday in the past and decided to play along this week as well.  I thought the sketch would be perfect for a card depicting Spring.  I am so tired of this long cold winter we are having this year in Ontario!  This week's sketch challenge has a twist - Cameo

Here is the sketch:

Here is my card:

I stamped the tulip stamp which is from Inkadinkado in Versamark Majestic Blue and then coloured it using my Dove Blender pen and SU'S Wild Wasabi and Purely Pomegranate ink.  I then used a circle punch to make the image appear like a Cameo.  I also used my Tonic Butterfly Circle die, green ribbon and light green pearls from my stash.  The design paper is by Wild Rose Studio - Annabelle's Garden.  I am very pleased with how well this card turned out even though I am not a big fan of colouring images.  Using the Dove blender pen makes it a lot easier.  I also coloured 2 other images with markers and Prisma coloured pencils but I prefer the image that I put on the card.  I was amazed at how easy it was to get the lighter and darker shades just using 2 ink colours and my blender pen.  

Thanks for stopping by and have a creative day!
