Dazzling Tulips

Hi Everyone and Happy Wednesday!

It was finally feeling like spring around here, but we have had a little setback as the temps have cooled and we are expecting rain tomorrow.  I am not going to let the weather dampen my spring break fun; I am having lunch with friends at a tea room tomorrow and  I am looking forward to touring a Frank Loyd Wright house with a friend on Friday;  I am a bit of a Frank Loyd Wright fan.
Anywho, on to this week's Add a Little Dazzle Challenge.  We are continuing on with spring, regardless of the weather in your neck of the woods; this week is a theme challenge- "Spring"~

And here is your challenge photo~

When I see tulips, I think of the beautiful scenes of tulips and wind mills in Holland.  Of course, this is not the type of wind mill you see in the photos, but it is the only wind mill die I have, so it will have to suffice! 
I always feel like I have way too many stamps, but every time I am looking for something in particular, I do not have it.  Like tulips.  I do not have a plain tulip stamp.  Instead, it has a big bunny in the midst of the tulips and has a checkered border framing the image.  So, yes, every one of these tulips has been fussy cut out.
My background is water colored with my Peerless watercolors -love those things. The tulips are stamped fussy cut and colored with Copics.  My grassy hills are cut using a Simon Says Stamp Stitched Slopes and Hills die.
The windmill is cut with a Top Dog Dies Windmill Die.  I cut it from the silver back side of an Add a Little Dazzle Craft Metal Sheet.
