Broken Tulip

 Morning all.  We are looking for your 'spring' projects over at Make My Monday this time.  When I think of spring I always think of Tulips.  They are so pretty.  It's a pity they don't last long.  

Fun fact of the week: Streaked tulips are called broken tulips and get their streaks from a virus infection.  This was practically the only think I learnt from trying to plough my way through a book on Tulip mania.  I gave up in the end.  It was hard going.

Also hard going is this lovely wood mounted stamp I've had forever.  I think it's stunning but I'm never pleased with how I colour it.  This is the closest I've got to getting it right but I'm still not happy.  I covered it in sparkle pen to try and make it look better.  

Anyway, I'm off to enjoy the last of the tulips in my garden.

Thanks for reading.

Love Dawn x
