A Day for Tulips

There's another Peep of the Week challenge at Power Poppy - again for any creation using Power Poppy stamps.  Well, it's a cold, bleak Winter day here in sunny(?) Queensland so I decided that I needed to use some warm, bright colours to cheer me up.  So I started with a nice piece of yellow paper from the Citrus Stack by DCWV and layered it onto red cardstock.  Next, I printed out the wonderful Power Poppy Tulips, die cut them  with a Spellbinders Decorative Labels Eight and coloured them with copics.  Then I used the sentiment from the Gladiolis set, punched it out with a circle punch and layered it onto the yellow background paper and then onto red cardstock that I die cut with a Spellbinders Scallop Circle die.  I have just added the Spellbinders A2 Bracket Borders One to my collection, and it was calling out to be used, so, with red and white cardstock, I made the fancy little piece at the bottom (so satisfying to use a new toy!).  I threaded some narrow red and gold ribbon through the top of the image piece, added a bow and attached the sentiment piece with foam tape.

Copic Colours used were:  R22, R24, R27, Y11, Y15, YG11, YG13, YG17.

Thanks so much for coming to visit!
