Sunny Studio: You Color My World

Hello everyone! Amy here to share with you a card I made using the Timeless Tulips and Color Me Happy stamp sets.  This was only my second time using a layering set, but after making this card I've become a fan of the style.

As I mentioned before, I don't make cards with layering stamps. Therefore, I don't own any dye inks with coordinating colors, or that will produce a crisp stamped image. However, I do have a whole collection of Distress inks and I thought I'd give them a try.  The images can be crisper and stamped better but I think they still turned out pretty, do you agree?

The sentiment says "You color my world" so I wanted this card to be colorful. I used various Distress Inks to stamp all different style tulips you find in this set, along with three stems and leaves. Next, I fussy cut them out. Then, I stamped three stems and leaves again, this time directly onto front panel, leaving space between them. At this point I also stamped the sentiment and added the cute little bugs. Finally, I adhered the other stems and leaves in the open spaces. I added foam adhesive behind all the tulip buds and added them to the front panel.
I really enjoyed working with the Timeless Tulip stamp set; it produces really pretty flowers. It also inspired me to pick up some dye inks that are meant for layering. I can't wait to try them out with this stamp set again.  Maybe I can share those with you next time.  Thank you for stopping by!
