Good Friends

Good evening and welcome to a post to announce the start of the latest challenge over at ATSM.
Here is my card for your inspiration.

I used this week's photo, taking the tulips and large phrase sentiment as my focus.

I wanted to use the MFT chevron cover plate as it has sat in my box since Christmas, so that was my background sorted, then I stamped and embossed some tulip heads and used DI in Mustard Seed to colour them in a w/c style. The stems and leaves are some die cuts which I also coloured  using washes of Mown Lawn DI. The large sentiment is from KaiserKraft and stamped on a Spellbinders ribbon tag die cut attached with lime baker's twine. Quite simple really.

This week the wonderful Kylie at Happy Little Stampers is sponsoring us.

Prize is a $15 gift certificate

Happy Little Stampers was created in 2015 by Kylie (owner of ATSM and ATCAS). Kylie wanted to bring out a line of stamps that were useful for every day crafters. From cute to whimsical images, from everyday to funky sentiments there is something for everyone!

For more fab inspiration please go to the main ATSM blog and check out the rest of the DT.

I'd like to join in over at -
