I had some new twine I wanted to play with and my fairly new Zig Kuretake markers so I pulled out my Hero Arts Newprint Tulips, colored them, spritzed, stamped on glossy cardstock and got the image above with the close-up below.  I colored some swirls for the background and also colored the edges of cardstock for my layers to get a perfect color match.  A few purple sequins from my stash and I was done. I hope you will have some fun and join us this month.
