Tuesday Trigger

Today's card is for Tuesday Trigger with Simple Elegance and Moxie Fab World with The Fascination of Feathers. The tulips are distressed with worn lipstick and shabbby shutter and once dry, heat embossed with clear powder to give the morning dew look.  The background is also heat embossed in clear powder.  I also added a very soft pink feather behind the tulips.



As promised yesterday, we went hunting for bulbs.  My DH wanted to try a different route to a different village and we got lost and ended cycling for about 18 km before I found this!  The bulbs are not bloomed yet and I could not take a close up of the photo as I was standing on the opposite of a busy road.  On the return trip, we only cycled 10 km!


Here is a close up of the bulbs from the field.  Not too sure what's the english name.


These daffodils are taken just closed by our house and I love how they gave the wavy look.

Beautiful take on the trigger, Lai-Yoke! Love what you've been creating lately with the tulips!

Thanks for sharing the flower photos! The white one is called a Hyacinth here in the U.S. - one of my favorite flowers - they smell sooo yummy! Love the variegated daffodils too - so pretty with the mix of yellow and orange! :)

Oh thank you for the lovely pictures today, Lai Yoke! We will miss all of this this year, as they don't grow here in Florida, and by the time we get home next week, they'll be all finished blooming. The beautiful white flowers we call hyacinths - don't they have a beautiful fragrance? Your card is lovely as well, love your pink tulips!

Gorgeous card, Lai-Yoke! Love your colouring and the dew like effect you achieved on the tulips! The feather is such a pretty touch! Sounds like you had a fun day out and you photos are gorgeous! We call the white flowers hyacinths, they come in such beautiful colours and smell so sweet.

Your card is lovely, Lai-Yoke! Did you also enter it in the Feathers challenge at Moxie Fab? You should :)
Love the beautiful watercoloured effect you achieved on the tulips.
The photos are gorgeous - I'm a little jealous since no green leaves are here yet...and looking at the weather we have 10-15 cm of snow coming tomorrow. So keep posting flowers for me!

Such a pretty card, Lai-Yoke! I LOVE the colours on the tulips - they look amazing.
The photos of the geraniums and daffodils look beautiful. Makes me think so much of Keukenhof - I love that place. I transited in Schiphol 2 weeks ago, and it brought back so many great memories of my time in Netherlands. Perhaps someday I could visit again... {hugs}

I love your card today as well- the tulips are gorgeous and that embossed bg has nice shine. Feathers are such a unique touch and add a lot of softness!
