Travel around the world "Amsterdam" swap


For this Amsterdam page I used a pic of "Nightwatch" by Rembrandt which I saw on a visit to Amsterdam. I loved seeing everyone on bikes everywhere so I have stamped some bikes on a transparency over the pic. We visited the Bloemenmarkt and saw all the beautiful flowers and I bought a yucca stick whilst I was there and my yucca plant is still growing it is nearly 4ft high. There was also a Van Gogh exhibition which we visited and I remember seeing a very funny t-shirt with Van Gogh wearing headphones ..wish I had bought it!! I have stamped sunflowers over the transparencey and coloured them in on the back. I have embossed Amsterdam on a copper plant tag and added the wire at the top to keep the tranparency on. Hope Angelika (fatma) likes it!!
