Two-tone Tulip

Hi everyone! Today I am sharing a two-tone colouring of a tulip. The tulip stamp and the sentiment stamp are both from Stamping Bella

For the stem I used YG01, YG21, YG23 and, the for the darkest areas, YG17

I started with my yellow mid colour, Y13 and flicked inwards from the edges, just to get an idea of where I wanted the red to be. 

With R35 flick outwards from the centre, leaving a line up the middle. 

Apply some Y38, again, in a flicking motion, to the edges of the R35

Apply R37 to the centre of each petal

Go back in with Y17, blending the colours

Use Y11 around the edges. Apply some red up the centre of the yellow strip and blend out using Y15 and Y13. 

Repeat the application of  the colours until you are happy with the tone and the shading/blending. 

Finally, use the blending marker to get rid of any colour that bled outside the lines, and add some white gel pen for highlights. 

Stamp the sentiment under the tulip and make a DL card measuring 100mm x 210mm
