Hello! We made it to Friday and, finally, a card. I started watercoloring these tulips before we went camping. I had one bloom done. I even took along the few supplies I'd need to finish them, but they never came out of the case. After several days home it was a treat to sit down and complete the painting.
It's not that I haven't colored these Power Poppy digital Tulips many times, but they were printed up and sitting in my digi box which I'm working my way through, so out they came. Let's face it, it's a beautiful image and I'll probably color them many more times yet. Marcella's flowers, sigh... need I say more?
I used Tombow markers on Arches 140 lb hot pressed watercolor paper. The designer paper curve is the negative left over from cutting a landscape die, and it fit nicely with the shape of the tulips.
You can't tell from looking, but the silk ribbon bow lays flat as a pancake and will not interfere with mailing one bit. I punched an 1/8" hole in the panel and settled the knot into it with a little dab of Aleene's Tacky Glue. This works best with the image panel popped up as it is here.
The sentiment is another Power Poppy digi -- Winter Pick Me Up.
I have a few things to do in the garden, but I'm pretty sure stamping will happen again soon. It's coming along much like our spring -- in fits and starts. As I write this, the sun is shining again after a day or two of clouds. Must enjoy it while it's here. It was a long, wet winter! Have a happy day!
