So Suzy Tulips

Hi Everyone,

I am have a photo tutorial today for So Suzy Stamps. 
And since its supposedly spring (just recovering from yet another Nor Easter) - I choose those beautiful tulips for my blog post.

I got inspired by a blog post from Maria Fischer from rieslingmama, who got this from Tim Holtz. I watched part of his lengthy YouTube Video, but it really is not necessary. But if you have nothing better to do, go for it!

How did I get this background?

I smooshed distress oxide ink onto my ancient craft mat

spritzed it with water

dipped the glossy side of my cheap photo paper (Costco) into the mess. Dried it and dipped again. I did not want the entire surface covered, so I stopped. But you can keep going as long as you dry your paper in between (used a heat gun).

Added Finetec gold splatters.

I used the acrylic plate of a stamp positioner to get an idea about how to add the tulips

Stamped them onto the paper with Catherine Pooler ink - that works beautiful on glossy card stock. I did some generational stamping, but the last impression was week, so I used the stamp positioner, to overstamp and get a good impression.

Trimmed and matted my card base and added a black die cut as sentiment. I did experiment with white and gold, but I liked black the best.

You may know this already, but just in case you don't.... We have a new feature here at So Suzy's. 
You get a stamp with every order free.
This month it is THIS stamp:

We also have a sale going on at this month, but not much longer:
Happy Smooshing!

Nor 'easter or not this screams Spring. Love the color and those gold splatters. It's for sure black sentiment was a good choice...draws your eye to the colors more.
