It is a special day today in TheNetherlands.
We are celebrating King Day:
The birthday of our King Willem-Alexander.
Out on the streets there is a big flee market and
people are all dressed up in orange, for our king
is from The House of Orange.
Of course I have to show my American friend
around and have her dress up in orange too!
After a great part of the day outside, we end up
stamping in my craftroom.
On top you see a page I made with Club Scraps
digital Delft kit from March.
And here is a birthday card for the king
with Michael Strongs tulip stamps.
I started the card with stamping the small tulip
in orange in for the background.
The tulip i stamped on orange and green paper
and is embossed with white embossing powder.
Cutting the flower from the orange and using the
green leave part together on a gold background
cut with the matching metal tulip die.
Finishing of the card with an orange ribbon
and a bithday sentiment.
With some leftover pieces this 2nd card was made.
First I made the aquarel background with the direct to paper
technique. I used spiced marmalade distress ink.
With the same inkpad I stamped the small tulip stamp
and added the bees . Then in black the sentiment
(by Penny Black) is added. I thjought there was too
much white and I look some bubble wrap and the
same ink to spice up the background.
Thank you for looking
and have a creative day!
