Tulips from....

Erm, well Bolton actually! They were inspired by my recent trip to Holland though! That and the challenge over at Less Is More this week which is...

Use a Rubber Stamp
and watercolouring!

So I dug out my Watercolour Paper and Aqua Painters and got to work...not quite a Van Gogh!

I used the tulip from the Backyard Basics set, and cut it out with the matching die. They really do make life easy! The embossing folder is Stylish Stripes from the new seasonal catalogue. Can you see the paper pierced corners? I've seen it around quite a bit lately and thought it would work well here.

The sentiment is from the hostess set Express Yourself.
