Bucket of Tulips


Yes, you guessed it! I'm still dreaming of spring. I'm afraid for all of the wishing I'm doing, it isn't changing the weather any. Today we've had freezing rain and snow on top of our already deep snowbase. It will be many months before I can pick a bucket of tulips like these.

But I won't let the outdoor weather stop my indoor dreaming. This is an old PSX stamp that I just never get tired of. I stamped with versamark on watercolor paper and embossed with silver detail embossing powder. Next I watercolored the image with Tombow markers. The "grateful" stamp is from Stampin' Up!. I matted and mounted the tulips on some bright and sunny BoBunny designer paper, added a couple of ribbons and red crystals.

  1. Oh my gosh....I LOVE that PSX stamp! I wonder where mine is??? You did such a fabulous job coloring it with your Tombows. Don't you just love them?

    BTW...I have been meaning to tell you that I have about 100 or so sheets of white marl paper if you ever need some.

    Why don't you bring Spring into the house? I have hyacynth bulbs and tulips in full bloom at the moment!
