Easter is coming soon... Many of us are enjoying God's wonders in our gardens, like tulips and other beautiful flowers.. SO, that gives me "an excuse" to blog more stamped flower creations! :)
Thank you for the amazing response to my Hardwood Background stamp fence card (here)! When I showed it to my hubby he said, "How about a dog eared fence, have you tried that?"... well, I took the challenge! Yep, guess what?! It's SUPER EASY with the Triangle Punch!! check out my tutorial below for 2 easy steps to creating this fence, and see my VIDEO Tutorial here for more tips on using the Hardwood Backround Stamp from Stampin' Up!.
I used the Blessed Easter tulip stamp from the Occasions Stampin' Up! catalog (pg 20) and stamped it twice on Watercolor Paper, then used the technique shown below to "color" the flowers. I cut them out and added them to my beautiful fence with Stampin' Dimensionals :)
How to Color the Tulips:
Use the Staz On Black ink pad and Watercolor paper, then follow the instructions below for "coloring" the tulips by stamping Real Red and Crushed Curry ink using the "brushstroke" stamp from the Happy Watercolor set.
I stamped the Hardwood Background Stamp in Early Espresso ink onto Soft Suede cardstock, then applied Cajun Craze and Soft Suede ink with my Aqua Painter to give the fence more realistic texture and coloring. And how about that EASY PEASY way to make the dog eared fence boards!! :) :) whohoooo!
Last year the association in our neighborhood replaced the back fences for all of us... I noticed how irregular the colors are in the fence boards were so that's why I tried some different colors on this fence card. The workers had to remove all of our vines and plants that had grown up all over the old fence for 20+ years.. so that's why my planter was so bare in this photo.. but we've replanted and have lots of pretties now! :)
Yep, the "ramp" is for our squirrel friends :)
