One more card, Tulip

Tulip I love this one also. Stamp is by Anna Griffin. It was rather difficult to get this look. I experimented with several inks. Finally I used pink passion pigment ink from Stampin' Up on the tulip, and then LIGHTLY penciled in edges of petals with watercolor pencils to emphasize and darken them; then LIGHTLY smuged inside the petals with a damp sable brush (no. 2 round). Brushing water or permanent markers onto the stamp did not work well.

I used Picasa to upload this picture. Only one picture can be loaded at a time using "Blog This" button. Works well.'s own Picture-Icon for loading pics no longer seems to work at all.
