Paint-A-Flower Tulips Outline Stamp Set

Sigh! Such beautiful cards!

Let's take a closer look at these beauties...

Gosh, they're such pretty blooms! 
I inked mine with Altenew's Permanent Black Crisp Ink & hand painted with the Watercolor 36 Pan Set. Simple, and yet so elegant!

 I fussy cut out the painted tulips, & foam mounted them onto one of the Celebrate Scrapbook Collection papers. For added dimension & interest, I also foam mounted the pattern papers onto my white card bases.
 So gorgeous!

This one is my personal favorite....

Those colors are errrything! 

Just Stunning! 

But maybe you prefer this brighter and bolder version? 

That purple is really oppulent!

Which one was your favorite? Please let me know in the comments below.
