Some old tulips

I enjoyed making the background to my Naughty or Nice DT card and thought I'd have another go :)
I've used this ooooooold tulip stamp from Penny Black dated 1999 ... I wonder how many stamps have that staying power eh?!!
Coloured with watercolour pencils.  Clear gloss added to the tulips and glitter added to the pink ones.  Hand doodled border.

  1. Fab card! Your tulips are so pretty - especially with the gloss and sparkle - and I always love your doodled frames. I wonder if any of my second-hand stamps that I've purchased from the thrift store are as old as your tulip stamp. Classy stamps never go out of style!
