Spring Tulips

Welcome to my studio!  I am having fun revisiting some of favorite older stamps.  Today I have used a favorite tulip stamp by PSX dated 2001.  Isn't it nice when stamps are dated? But some of these stamps make me feel so old.
I stamped the Tulips with Memento Rich Cocoa, which is less harsh than using black ink. I colored the image with Copics-I no longer list all the numbers because I used quite a few markers in coloring this image.  I trimmed the image with a fancy oval die...the maker is no longer remembered by me but the die is a silver color. If someone knows the maker, please share that information with me.  One of the challenges of card making that I enjoy is matching the right patterned paper with an image.  For this design, I chose a pattern from MME Memorable pad and used it with a white card base.  I liked the look of this card as is and decided not to add a sentiment or any other enhancement. Will used the inside of the card to add a sentiment when I decide to use the card.
Retro Rubber Challenge:  #134 Spring Flowers. The tulips on this 2001 stamp are some of my favorite spring flowers.  Have had this stamp at least 18 years.

This is totally gorgeous. Love, love, love the image of the tulips in a bucket and your colouring is awesome. I had a good smile at your story too - it's quite hard to get too excited about listing your supplies so I really liked your silver coloured die! Thanks so much for joining in with us at Retro Rubber Challenge.
