tiptoe through the tulips


Dating myself here... anyone else remember Tiny Tim?

Well awhile back I submitted this card for a call asking for cards inspired by a song.  This one didn't get picked up but my Mom loved it! Said it's like the ones she chooses at Hallmark.  Now that thrilled me ;))



Wanted to go minimalistic.  A PC-generated sentiment. A stamp I love - American Arts Tulips in black on lotsa white.  I made a circle mask and using the negative splattered some red and yellow Pshiitt spray ink from Kesi Art around the tulips. Voila!

Thanks for looking.

OH, what a DARLING card, Maria! I love it, also!
Your mom's approval is THE BEST compliment!

Very sweet card! Great idea to cut a mask so that the splatters don't go everywhere! It's obvious now, but I don't know if I would have thought of it. Probably shouldn't admit that...

Don't forget Miss Vicky! Tiny Tim was so...well, weird, but that song really did stick in people's heads! Your card is definitely NOT weird, it's rather awesome, if I may say so. This is just brilliant. Love the image and the encapsulated splatters. Great card Maria. Bev

Cornelia,
It was a free font from Creating Keepsakes.com called "CK Becky". It was one of those that they offer as a free download on the website for a week.
