Tiptoe Through the Tulips

The challenge at Meljen's Designs this week is to use only solid cardstock.  Patterned paper is not allowed this week.  Sounds easy doesn't it...not so much.  I often rely on patterned paper to add a bit of texture or punch to a solid area.  I had to come up with other ways to get the same punch.

I used the image Tulip Buggies and colored with Prismacolor pencils blended with baby oil.

I created the panel by spraying my Cuttlebug Birds & Swirls embossing folder with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist in Patina and Frost.  I used that to emboss a piece of white cardstock.  I embossed the background using my Cuttlebug as well.  I created faux stitching with a white Signo gel pen.

In case you haven't heard, Melissa Jenkins, owner of Meljen's Designs has opened her very own shop.  All of her images are 50% off until tomorrow!  You can also participate in a blog hop to celebrate and could win 4 images!  The design team came up with some wonderful inspiration.  Go check it out!
