Printing a vase

It's been another grey drizzly day here. It s getting tiresome. Showers are forecast for tomorrow. I am hoping to get out in between to do a bit of planting.
I wasn't home for long today. In between I stamped a vase shape onto a piece of fabric that was screened with a white and painted with a gold transparent paint.

The design on the vase was done by masking off part of one of my homemade stencils.

Originally, I planned to make tulip stamps for the vase but now I'm thinking maybe lilacs. Mine are half opened. I'm thinking of pressing a couple and trying to print with them. i use old phone books to press plant materials. Let you know how that goes in a few days.

I now have a few tulips showing. I think I need more as the Rooster is noticing them. The lilacs aren't hardly leafing. Frost this morning but the rain is holding back now. Fill that nice vase!!! :)

my tulips are long gone, lilacs too. My first flush of roses are looking gorgeous! Love the background fabric - very pretty
