Today is day two of the There She Goes April Release Previews. If you have come from Kim's blog you are right on track. If not, you can go to the There She Goes blog and start from the beginning.
Chris Dark is the illustrator of the first preview set called Tulip. I was beyond thrilled when I saw this set because tulips are my favorite flower!! Her image is wonderfully realistic and I know I'll be using it many times over :)
I coloured my tulip with Twinkling H2Os and used the Just Add Ink sketch from a few week's ago. Since tulips are a true sign of spring, I decided to go with some lovely pastels. I scored the white background panel to give it a little something, and though you can't see it in the picture, the saffron panel is some SU DSP with a very subtle pattern on it.
The rectangle is made from placing two lacy nestie squares together (think Spellbinders needs to put out a lacy rectangle set next!). I'm happy with the soft feel to this card and can't wait to send it to a friend. Maybe a fellow tulip lover at that :)
Today we also get to preview a set designed by none other than Jessica Knutsen, owner of There She Goes Stamps herself!! Jessica has come up with a very fun set called Technology Bytes. She has covered her bases too! From cell phones to PCs, and lots of hilarious sentiments to go with the images in this set. You'll definitely get a good laugh when you read them.
I used this week's Sweet and Sassy sketch for my second card. Yes, I know it has a skewed panel....eeeek, what is happening to me LOL! It had the right size and shape panel I needed to fit the image I wanted to use so I went for it. That's my story and I'm sticking to it :)
Since I use a PC (though I do dream of owning a laptop some day...), I opted for this image and just had to use this sentiment because it hits close to home LOL! The TSG on the screen stands for There She Goes of course :) Couldn't resist adding that with a little heart next to it. There are lots of other sentiments that I could have used and can't wait to make another card with this set so I can use some more of them!
