I had a card in mind with one of my awesome Power Poppy digi’s.
And if you hurry you can get these and other stamps

For the card I printed the image on to Neenah cardstock several times.
Unfortunately what I wanted didn’t work. So the image was on my table and that was it.
Later in the week I was far behind reading blog posts and YouTube video that goes along with them, so I put my headphone on and read and watched. My daughter popped in and put several alcohol markers on my desk telling me she needed them again later but they were in her way.
Left from me the tulip image was laying on my desk and right some markers, that’s 1 + 1 for my brain.
I decided to play a little with two blue markers.
I loved how the image came out and wanted to go a step further, I outlined the image with a gold gel pen.
Finished I thought I’d done an awesome job, if you may say that from yourself LOL.
My first intention (earlier that week) was to print and heat emboss the tulip, but that didn’t work.
This was about the same look, although the lines are not as bold but I like this even more.
When finished I also knew immediately what I wanted to do with it.
I have a die that cuts 9 tiles and I thought this would be great with this image.
I taped my die on to the panel, first stamped the sentiment and then ran it through my Vagabond.
I let the pieces sit in the die, turned it around and put 1 mm. foam tape on every piece.
Turned it with the image right side up and placed it on slightly bigger blue metallic cardstock panel, with a little pressure I tipped the image pieces out of the die and adhered them in the same time.
I adhered the blue panel to a white base card.
And that’s how I finished my card that started by just playing with something that was on my desk.
I hope you enjoy the card as much as I did making it.
The used materials are under the image and if you have any questions don’t hesitate to ask. The photo doesn’t do justice to the card, because of the blue metallic cardstock it was hard to make a good photo.
