Ink.Stamp.Share Showcase Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Ink Stamp Share Showcase blog hop!

There is no theme today - although you'll find we have all used products from the Stampin' Up! Annual or Mini catalogue.

It's possible some may even have their hands on pre order items from the upcoming Mini catalogue and Sale-a-Bration catalogue. 

I'm sharing today the second card I've created with the Tulip Fields bundle. Time has flown by and I'm gutted that I've only managed to share two projects from this set.

This bundle is retiring at the end of June so if you want to get hold of the Tulip Fields stamp set and Windmill fields dies, they are only available until supplies last.

I made this card for my Mums birthday which was a few days ago. Here is a picture of us on holiday in Cornwall a few weeks ago. We took this picture in St Ives on the most beautiful day.

My Mum grew up in Holland, it is also where my Mums sister and mother lives. Holland is a special place for us so this set is perfect for my family and for that reason it will certainly be a keeper.

I decided to go for bolder colours within the colour palette I tend to use. Highland Heather, Balmy Blue and Melon Mambo are the main colours featured on this card.

I've used a combination of Evening Evergreen and Soft Succulent for the tiny hedge between the fields of flowers and the fence. 

To create the sky, I used Balmy Blue with a Blending Brush. I don't blend often but I do like what I've created here, there is this feeling of light coming through as I made sure the ink was darker on both sides.

The clouds are actually from the Brilliant Rainbow dies as I had some spare from a previous project. I've linked this set below but within the Windmill Fields dies there are some small clouds, they are a different shape but would work just as well.

The fence is from the Windmill Fields dies. As it's quite intricate, I added Adhesive Sheets to the back of the Silver Foil Specialty Pack. This made it a dream to adhere to the card.  

The windmill is from the Tulip Fields stamp set has been stamped on Basic White in Versamark Ink and heat embossed in Silver. 

I gave it a few minutes before I ran it through the die cutting machine using the coordinating Windmill dies.

Thank you so much for visiting my blog - I hope you enjoyed my project today!
