A Flower for Many!

Hello All,

I was walking the other day and found myself looking around at the the few trees that are already full of blossom. This made me think of the 'Blossom' challenge at CASology. I noted the colours-a pale pink blossom surrounded by a baby blue sky and I had the idea of using these colours to make a card for this challenge.
That afternoon I clocked a few photo challenges and these inspired me to get out my water colours and create this card:


I have used all Uniko stamps here. I embossed the flower in pink then water coloured it in pink on the outer petals. I then mixed this pink with some white paint for this inner petals. My wash surrounding the flower was my attempt to represent the sky I saw whilst walking.

I will enter this into the following challenges:

CASology-blossom
Simon Says Wednesday-the pink roses gave me the colours.
Dazzling Diva-again the 2 colours of pink roses are represented in my card.
Fusion-large pink flowers-my second entry but this time I went more CAS and only went with the pink flowers

  1. Well, this is just lovely! It's funny, but last night I was doing some water colouring too. Using a flower image as well. Actually a very similar flower image but it's one I hand drew recently. We think a like apparently! I wish I could say I was inspired by the flowers blooming here but we still have tons of snow so I'm thinking I won't see any of that until late April. :-(. I'll just have to content myself with the idea of Spring. :-). Great card, Sandie. Love it!
