The Stamping Boutique + Edna = My Tulip Fairy Card

Happy Hellos Eveveryone:

While on my self-imposed hiatus, I took time to peruse a few of your sites especially some of my favorite sites. You know, the ones that really inspire to create and/or purchase an item you didn't think you needed until you saw it on your favorite site. Well, that's what happened about a week ago. I was visiting Edna down under at Stamp Paper Happiness. She is such an inspiration to me. I absolutely love, love, love her work. She created this wonderful card using a stamp image, Tulip Fairy from The Stamping Boutique. OMG! Immediately, I knew I wanted this image. The odd thing about it is, I'm not big on fairies. I was tempted to purchase the digital image because, I just didn't want to wait, but I held out. Instead, I decided to order the rubber stamp. I'm so glad I did. It was the good [cling] rubber. That very same evening it arrived, I decided to try it out. I think I was too excited because it just didn't come out like I wanted it to. The next evening, I tried my hand at it again and this time the colored image came out the way I had hope. Since then, I have reproduced this image again and I must say, I was very pleased.  The second image looked much better than the first. To my misfortune, I forgot to take a picture and now it's gone. So, I'm sharing the first image with you instead. Take a look....


Well, a big thanks to Edna for sharing and
 thank you for stopping by The Peddler's Gallery. Come back real soon.
