Tiptoe Through the Tulips! by Deanna M
I have a fun home decor project for you today. This is the Tulip Photo Display from Kaisercraft. Isn't it just too cute! (Want one for yourself, just ask Kim at Cutter's Creek to order you one.
I painted each tulip with a different color of acrylic paint, I painted the base with green and the fence in brown. The Adirondack Paint Dabbers would work great for this project. I used some Flower Soft Adhesive and Meadow Flower Soft on the front of the base. I covered the tulips in different polka dotted patterned paper from the My Minds Eye 6" X 6" paper packs. I used my white gel pen to add some faux stitching to the tulips and the leaves on the flowers.
I used the new Spring Cottage Seasonal Cartridge and some scrap paper to cut some ferns at 1 1/2" and some grass(really flower leaves) and some flowers at 3/4". I added some Key Lime Liquid Pearls to the center of my flowers. I cut some birds at 1" also from the Spring Cottage cartridge (ask Kim if she can get this for you). Finally I cut Tiptoe Through the Tulips from the Bloom Lite Catridge and colored the different layers with the Bubblegum Stripes Imagine cartridge. I used the Key Lime Liquid Pearls for the dot over my "I" in Tiptoe. This cute little photo display comes with 3 mini clothes pins which I adhered behind each tulip and used to display my little sentiment from the middle tulip. Sure hope you like it. And don't forget to join us in the No Foolin' Contest that is going on through April 15th!
