Coming Up Iris – watercolored

Hello everyone! Hope your week is off to a great start! It’s TaeEun here today with a watercolored floral card. I watercolored the bearded iris flowers from the Coming Up Iris stamp set from our latest release. If you prefer a faster and effective coloring, you can use the Climbing Iris Layering Stencil set which coordinates with the Coming Up Iris !

I stamped the Coming Up Iris image in Soft Cream ink on a Bristol smooth paper panel and watercolored it. I colored the upper part of the flowers in pink, coral and orange and the lower petals in violet and orange. I worked in several layers. After done with watercoloring I added details to the petals using Polychromos colored pencils. After that I cut the Coming Up Iris image using the Climbing Iris coordinating die and set it aside.

I die cut the negative piece which was left from the colored panel using the Quilted A2 die to use it for my background. 

I ink blended a white cardbase in Iris Blooms and Violet Fringe, splattered white opaque ink and let it dry. On the prepared cardbase I adhered the left side of the die cut negative panel and foam mounted the watercolored flower image.

The sentiment from the Coming Up Iris set was stamped in Violet Fringe and die cut using the Climbing Iris coordinating die . To add some bling I scattered a few Dark Purple Opaque rhinestones

That’s it from me for today! I had lots of fun watercoloring the beautiful Coming Up Iris image. I hope you got some inspiration from my card and try some coloring for your next project!

Thank you so much for stopping by today!
