Daffodils

Daffodils Heather Telford

I have daffodils happily blooming in my backyard. Last count there were ten, which is a little short of the 100 bulbs I have planted in the back garden over the years! Who knows what happened to the rest of them? Daffodils are such a happy flower; each year I debate whether to leave them in the garden to enjoy or bring them inside. I usually leave them where they are, after all there aren’t many so they should stick together. We have had really nice weather this week and it is getting hotter by the end of the week so that bodes well for the tulip festival starting on Friday.

Daffodil Dance is a brushstroke stamp so it works well with distress stains. I used the colours listed below and stamped on a piece of watercolour paper already splattered with masking fluid. The mat and ribbon trim are navy to co-ordinate with the chipped sapphire stain but it looks black in the photo.

Have you checked out the One Layer Simplicity challenge this month? The theme is Blossom and the link up is displaying some gorgeous blooms.
