Navy and Gray Flowers

I hope you are doing well. It’s June and that means it is time for another Flower Challenge. This month’s challenge is using Navy & One Other color.

Our Guest Designer this month is Jenny Hall from jennyhalldesign.com, go check out here beautiful creations.

Today I made a card using Altenew’s Peony Bouquet.

I stamped the flowers in Weathered Wood Distress Ink and started painting up the flowers with Daniel Smith in Phthalo Blue. I added several layers of the color to build up a darker color. I then added random brush strokes with Graphite Gray to add interest.

Once the flowers were dry, I used the coordinating dies to cut out the flowers. Before placing the flowers on the card base, I stamped several of the leaves in Soft Graphite.

I placed the flowers with foam tape and then added the sentiment from the Altenew Wildflower Garden.

I added some blue splatters to finish of my card. Thank you for stopping by and I hope you have a great day!

  1. Ericka, I love this beautiful spray of flowers, the colors look even more intense on a gray background, and I agree, the stamping of the leaves gives the arrangement a 3D look.
    Love it.

  2. Beautiful watercoloring, Ericka, and stamping the leaves directly on the background makes them look hand drawn. It’s a wonderful arrangement.
