Tulips for You

It seems like it's been forever since I last sat down to color a picture. I have been sick  for the last several days, and therefore too tired to do anything. Couldn't even bring myself to read my new book. I am finally feeling a little better, and so I decided to create a card for the  Penny Black and More  blog. Sadly I didn't make it on time to be posted along with my team mates cards on the blog. This month our theme is "Make it sparkle".

Did you know this gorgeous stamp "Tulips for You" is now available as a cling mounted rubber stamp from Penny Black? I absolutely love it and it is nicely sized at over 4 inches. It can be purchased at PB stamps. If you click the link you will find the most recently released products by Penny Black. 


I colored the image using copic markers. It's a pretty simple card, although it did take me a long time to cut out the image. One of those new scan and cut machines sure would come in handy, but I enjoy fussy cutting too much to be even thinking about buying that expensive machine.

Here is another view.

I'd love to play along in a few challenges:

  Have a great day!!
