Taylored Expressions Challenge #68!

Happy Cupcake Friday! Today I wanted to use one of my all time favorite images from Cornish....Tulip Girl!
She is perfectly vintage, sweet, detailed and in my opinion on of the best stamps in the Saturday Evening Post line.
I took Taylor's sketch and flipped it this week...you know I had to do something or it wouldn't be me (giggle).
Who says you always need to stamp on white to color with your copics? No one....so here I am stamping on kraft and coloring with my markers. I did use my white prismacolor pencil for highlights on my tulips. Yes, that is one of my crocheted flowers you see as well. The suede brad that I had for this card wasn't quite the right shade.....so I airbrushed it to match too!
Here are all the deets:
Stamps:
Tulip Girl (Saturday Evening Post), Wedding Centers (Mona Lisa Moments) by Cornish Heritage Farms
Ink:
Espresso Adirondack (Ranger)
Tuxedo Black Memento (Tsukineko)
Paper:
Magical Wishes (Webster's Pages)
Kraft, White (Prism)
Paper Frills (Doodlebug)
Accessories:
Copic Markers
Circle Dies (Spellbinders)
Crocheted Flower (Made by Me)
Suede Brad (Making Memories)


Here is the sketch so you can play along in TAYLOR'S challenge.
Don't forget to see what the rest of the cupcake crew came up with:
Stephanie Hargis: Steph's Stampin' Stuff
Vicki Chrisman: This Art that makes me Happy
Jami Sibley: More is More
Monika Davis: M.A.D. Stamper
Donna Baker: Serenity in Stamping
Jackie Pedro: The Scalloped Edge
Ana Wohlfahrt: Ink A Stamp
Lynn Mercurio: Stamperosity


A little aside... my son got first place in both his piano pieces! So today he plays in the "playoff" round for a chance at some really nice hardware (trophies and scholarships).

Have a wonderful weekend and enjoy your blog blurfing (I know I am looking forward to seeing what the girls came up with)!
