Hi peeps. Vera here bringing you more Lovely Lily inspiration as promised on my post from last week.
Although, I have to admit that I made a big whoopsy. As I mentioned on my previous post I made 2 lily cards and will share the next one on today’s post. Well, as I was getting ready to type the post, I realized that I had made that card using some new release sets as well that I simply can’t share, yet. And, I was actually super excited to share that card because I was using quite a few set on 1 card.
Well, I have to wait to share that card till new release time & needless to say, I ended up making another one, so I can keep my promise of sharing another lily card. I really don’t mind at all as I can honestly say lily is one of my most favorite flower to color.
I decided to do watercolor on this lily and mix it up with some color pencil. Once I am done with the lily, I cut it with Brother Scan ‘n Cut & put it aside. For the background I simply stamped Peony Crush Cling Background with Versamark ink. This such a gorgeous set, I almost don’t want to cover it at all.
I trim the panel and adhere it to white cardstock base. I like to use white cardstock for base to make it easy writing on the inside. Then, I adhere the flower to the card. I adhere the stem flat with regular adhesive and the petal part with foam adhesive.
For the sentiment I used one of my favorite sentiment from Layered Floral Alpha Bundle and stamped it with Smoky Quartz ink pad.
During the process of this card, I am reminded that sometime it’s good to try to work with color or method that you’re not used to. I tend to avoid dark color, like this teal, but I am really glad that I give it a try as I actually love the way it look. I would like to encourage you to do the same. Use that cardstock or technique that you normally avoid. Who knows, the result might surprise you.
Well peeps, that’s all from me today. Hope you enjoy today’s card and may your weekend starts off wonderfully. Cheers…….
