Three Step Tulips

This is my card for this weeks card sketch challenge, It was made using the Terrific Tulips set from Stampin Up. It is one of those 2 - step - stamping sets.
I have never been one for solid image stamps as I just love to color, but I do like Tulips and this is why I caved in and bought this one. HOWEVER as you can see I went one step further than the 2 step stamping method.
I call it my three step technique, (not very original but all my creativity goes into my cards and not my words).
I have stamped this in the normal way, using Pretty in Pink, Rose Red and Sage Shadow. I simply colored in on top of the ink and blended with my Prismacolor Pencils to add more depth. I then stamped the script back ground in PinP

This was a quick card to make as the sketch challenge this week was a simple one. I am very pleased with the results and no doubt will be using this technique again.

Until next time
Inking of you all

This is a wonderfull card, love your coloring, and the little sentiment on the side is super fantastic. Wish I had thought of that, mind if I keep it mind for a card sometime?
