Lucky Tulip

Hey all! I recently ordered some stamps from a company for the first time, so today I have a card to share featuring Lucky Tulip from The Ton.

It has been a long time since I have watercoloured come flowers. It was so fun and relaxing to sit down and play with them. I love the way this card came out.

I used a bunch of different paint colours, Moon Glow, Cobalt Blue, Sap Green, Serpentine Genuin, Green Apatite Genuine, Quinacridone Gold, Rose of Ultramarine, Quinacridone Coral, and Quinacridone Violet.

So I decided to do what I love to do best, take a digital image, this time I chose the Climbing Clemantis and blow it up super large, I used a sentiment from the Cuppa Buttercups digital set and painted it all with my watercolours!
