Bathtime Tulip

I was naughty.  Again!  But it was a bargain!  Even although I'm going to the SECC this weekend for a mega stash splurge (can't wait!!!), and was meant to be on a stash diet (a bit like lent before Easter!), I treated myself to a Tulip bargain pack from Docrafts.  Ten of my lovely pounds got me, wait for it, two sets of Tulip stamps, a paper pack, two packs of stepper cards, blanks, two decoupage packs, die cuts, stickers and several packs of Elements toppers!  Told you it was a bargain!  I had swithered over this stamp set for so long, almost buying it several times, so I just had to have this pack, bearing in mind that one of the stamp sets would have cost me seven pounds on it's own!
The stamp set I've used here is one of those fun sets, where, with a bit of masking, you can create a scene, the girl in the bath, bath mat, mirror and champagne bottle are all separate stamps.  It's been coloured with my usual Promarkers, then I highlighted the bubbles with Diamond Stickles, and gave the mirror a bit of shine with Anita's 3D Gloss.
I used one of the stepper cards from the pack, along with the paper and two die cut sentiments.  The only things not from the pack are the Martha Stewart punched back panel, and the bow and gems.
Expect to see lots more from Tulip soon!
