Tulip Anniversary


Tulips don't last long, but they are cheery and bright.  I'm enjoying playing with watercolour effects.

The background is a stamp of dandelions stamped with DI's.  Florals diecut from card smooshed and coloured with DI's and splattered with white Distress stain. At the end I also painted parts of the tulips with gold shimmer mist (you can see it in the detail pic).  The sentiment is diecut and stacked on black card.

Background stamp: Hero Arts 

Floral dies: unknown

Stacked Senti die: unknown

Also: Distress Inks, Distress Stain, gold pearls
