Queen of the Night Tulips
by Rachel Duong
Hi, it's Rachel here to share a dramatic, yet clean and simple card. Have you ever seen velvety, deep black purple tulips?! They are called "Queen of the Night" and most spectacular! Absolutely intrigued by them, I decided to recreate them on paper. I love the outcome.
Steps to create this card.
1. Die cut the blossoms from the Poppystamps "Layered Tulips" die in shades of purple cardstock from the "Twilight Purple Collection" by Memory Box.
2. Beginning with the lower portion of the blossoms, blend black distress ink moving upward. Leave the tops untouched.
3. Using white ink, blend over the blossoms for highlights.
4. Die cut the stems from the "Layered Tulips" die in dark green from the "Lush Green Collection" by Memory Box.
5. Hot foil the sentiment of choice from the "Modest Banner Greetings" Foil and Cut Die Set in gold foil on black cardstock, then die cut.
6. Cut a light green card front approximately 4" x 5.25".
7. Die cut the Poppystamps "Pointy Lattice Plate" die from a scrap piece of medium weight paper. This will be a stencil.
8. Lay ithe stencil over the card front and lightly blend green or grey distress ink over the center.
9. Glue the card front onto a white card base.
10. Arrange the tulips and sentiment on the card and glue in place. Stunning!!
I hope you get a chance to try making this clean and simple tulip card. There are many flowers that are being grown in this midnight shade. I absolutely love it! You can make all types of flowers in this color once you have made one.
Here is another Queen of the Night tulip card, this time on kraft. The products I used are listed below with a direct link back to the Poppystamps site. The "Layered Tulips" are timeless and modern depending on the colors used.
Have a sensational day, see you soon!
Hi Rachel, Two CAS cards and they are so, so elegant, I love your choice of colours used too. The tulips die set is one of my favourites.
Lots of love from Patricia xx
