Spring Stretch #2 ~ Gypsy Challenge
My favorite flower of all time is the tulip. I get so mad when the bunnies eat my tulips ~ so I just had to share this little story!! I am having Easter at my house and my yard looks so yucky after such a long snowy winter. I went to Michaels and bought some silk tulips and daffodils. I stuck the flowers in my pots out in my front landscape. Well, the other morning a bunny was trying to eat my silk tulips. The bunny was very confused ~ I got a good laugh!!
I decided to make a LO using stretched tulips for Easter. I took the tulips from Walk In My Garden and stretched them on my gypsy. I put all three pieces on the mat and grouped them together and then stretched them. I copied two more. On the third set I reduced the size a little bit.
I embossed the tulip flowers in my cuttlebug using dots and paisleys.
The grass is from Everyday Paper Dolls. I welded two images together and cut it out in three different shades of green. I inked the grass and tulip stems with a green stamp pad.
