A Bouquet of Tulips

Kia Ora Koutou

Welcome back and today I want to share another fan card, but this time I have added the gorgeous Ornate Pocket & Accents die from Heartfelt Creations instead of an embossed layer.  I have  also  been  practising  my watercolour  techniques  using  Zig  Clean  Colour  Brush  Markers  on  Bockingford  watercolour  card and had some fun colouring this tulip bouquet from the Tulip Bouquet stamp and die set.

Happy Crafting
