Repeating Tulip

Hello everyone,

As usual, I was so pleased with yesterday's card that I just had to see how it worked with another favourite Gina K stamp.  My mother really liked this card so I decided to try some more tulips and with spring having finally arrived, I can't wait to see my tulips in bloom.

The printed paper is My Mind's Eye Vanity Fair layered on Close to My Heart Hollyhock.  The image is Gina K Spring Blooms stamped in Tombow 098, 158, 177. 757, 993, and 772 on Recollections Vanilla and layered on Momenta Denise Urban.  The ribbon is of unknown origin.  The embellishments are ZVA Creative gold pearls.

More repeating images, more stripes and more ribbon.  Many of my recent cards have similar elements but are entirely different cards.  It's amazing how that actually works.  I didn't get the knots in the ribbon as centered as I would have liked but that's happens and sometimes you just have to live with it.  This is a great image but I think in a repeating pattern like this, a more solid image like yesterday's iris, as opposed to a line drawing, works better.  It just has so much more heft that it carries the repeat better.  This isn't terrible because of the lined background paper.  All in all, it worked, and I'll repeat.

I hope you enjoy this card and come back to SPI again soon.

  1. Love this card. You always inspire me. Will have to try this out. A great way to use up some of the scraps and paper I have collected over the years. Thanks
