Flower Challenge #56

Happy May! It’s time for another fun challenge over at the Flower Challenge! Our challenge for May is …

Our Guest Designer this month is the fabulous Bozena (our November winner) over at Artcardbox go check out her blog if you have a minute as she makes such fabulous cards.

It was a hard choice this month to pick my favorite flower (kind of like picking your favorite child). I love them all and decided that my favorite is actually a big bloom and probably a Peony! For my card this month, I used the Colorado Craft Company Missing You Peony.

I stamped my flower in Gina K Amalgam Barely There ink for a no-line watercoloring look. I used my Daniel Smith watercolors to paint the big blossom.

Once my painting was dry, I used colored pencils to add some details and shading.

I stamped the sentiment included in the set and attached some gold thread behind the sentiment and attached it with foam tape. Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful week and get a chance to check out the other beautiful cards from the design team.

  1. Such a beautiful card Ericka, love the colours. I so have to try watercolouring, always seem to hold back with dissatisfaction. Maybe I need to try watercolour and pencil. The look you have achieved is so eye catching, love it.

  2. Hi Ericka! I adore peonies, but I’m having a hard time getting them to flourish in our current garden! Perhaps I should stick to the paper ones?
    This is such a gorgeous image – you’ve colored it beautifully!
