Paint Fusion Tulip Card

Hey everyone...Lynda here to tell you Sheena Douglass has done it again with more amazing life like painting techniques with her latest releases. I was lucky enough to get the Tulip stamp set to play with. I live in the Pacific Northwest and go to the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival each year where I get to experience some of the most beautiful flowers grown here in the US. I am always in awe of how each flower seems to look as if it were painted by hand....and these new Paint Fusion stamps and the included practice sheets make that possible.

For my card, I chose to use a red and an orange/yellow paint for my main flower colors. I first practiced the different leaves of the flower until I had mastered each one. I then put them all together to create my flower. I then use the practice sheet to learn to paint the leaves. The individual steps are so clearly outlined on the sheets that it makes learning to paint these flowers such an easy process.

I then attached my flower to a card base covered with some pattern paper. I used a rubon from the Fairyopolis Cardmaking kit to finish off my card.

I hope you will check out all the new release stamp sets as well as the complete line of Sheena Douglass Paint Fusion products.

Happy crafting....Lynda
