Tulips in My Garden

     My card today is done with the image from the Progressive Challenge at The Outlawz.  The image just happens to have been donated by SheepSki Designs, where I've just rejoined the DT.   :-D
Is this a marvelous image?


     I think this may be the most CAS card I've done ever!  I do like CAS and try to do simple designs pretty regularly but this is literally nothing more than the image adhered right onto the card base.

     I used ProMarkers to color the tulips and to make a bit of a scene by adding ground and very pale sky.  The sentiment is printed right with the image.  I cut it with a stitched die from Lawn Fawn and added a bit of marker ink to the edges.

     The card base is single sided, 12"x12", distressed, scrap booking CS which I cut to size and scored to make a tent fold card.  No embellishments - no ribbon, no flowers, no bows, no bling... just the die cut image and the card base.  I like it!

Fabulous CAS card - it is sometimes great fun to just let the image do the work - especially when you have put the effort into colouring it!

Thanks for sharing with us at Aud Sentiments, and also I Love Promarkers

Beautiful!! That image is so pretty and I love the die you used to frame it. The beauty of the image and interest from the die make it so you don't even realize there are no embellishments! Great job! Thanks for playing with The House That Stamps Built.
