I love tulips, but I haven't seen any yet this spring! I've seen daffodils so I know the tulips are coming. So starting with yesterday's card, I'm doing tulip cards until I see them in real life.
These tulips(Hero Arts) belong to one of the first stamp sets I purchased back when ALL my stamps fit into a shoe box. LOL! FYI, that was 1999. It is still one of my favorite tulip stamps. Back in those days, I was in my marker period. I couldn't remember ever coloring this image with color pencils, so it was time to bring it back out and do just that! There are only three tulips on the stamp so I stamped it a total of three times. The first two images were used intact, but for third image, I cut out only one of the tulips and stuck it right up front. After it was colored and cut it out, I used double stick tape runner and pop dots to attach it to the front of the card.
The bushel basket barrel thingy was stamped on tan card stock with black ink and embossed with clear embossing powder. I borrowed that stamp from my friend Debbie (and returned it years ago) so I'm not sure who the maker is.
The card is a pre-made tag shaped card. The only thing I did to it was stamped the word Heartfelt from that clear set I love called Heartfelt Messages also from Hero Arts.
