My birthday is the end of September... which represents to me my birthstone - Sapphire, and the beginning of Spring (living in the southern hemisphere).... so my colours are rich blue for the stone and bright yellow for the season. I stamped my tulips in weathered wood Distress Ink so the outline would be subdued. Then watercoloured my image with Distress Inks. I used some layering to bring out the colours with yellow and white and a blue card. Die cut my image with a circle and mounted it to a die cut lacy doiley and to finish added a ribbon bow... I left off a sentiment, so I could use the card for Any Occasion. I am playing along with Power Poppy Power and Spark October challenge - Motifs from your Birthday. Thanks for visiting and enjoy your day.
