Beautiful Day

Hello there.

I'm so glad you came for a visit!


This beautiful flower was stamped and heat embossed.

I used wet on wet watercolor for the flowers and leaves then fussy cut them out.

The Altenew July 2017 Inspiration Challenge
has this picture for inspiration.
I was inspired by the pink flowers.

A different kind of rose though.

EDITED TO ADD

I had already entered a card there but think I can enter again.
Do check out that wonderful gallery!


Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.

Enjoy!

What a beautiful card, Bonnie, and perfect design for a large blossom stamp. Plus that artful water coloring you are so good at. A lovely start to my day....

So pretty. Great watercolouring and love the textured background. I am working on a card using the same image ... we are definitely connected, my friend. It's one of the images you sent me over a year ago! Love this set. xx

So lovely! It gave me wonderful flashback to my childhood - the embossed background reminds me of a bedspread my parents had and the flower reminds me of the beautiful flower print curtains they had. Fabulous watercolouring of the flower. You should link it up to the Flower Challenge as it's perfect for it.

Beautiful card Bonnie, I love the flower you have used and the stunning colours, another of my favourites from Altenew. Love that embossing folder you have used too behind the flower, very nice, added to my list of must haves. Thank you so much for joing us at The Flower Challenge Aileen DT

All that embossed white cardstock is absolutely gorgeous, so clean and crisp. Love that the embossed pattern is framed by even more embossing (your so clever) and that flower looks incredible with your skillful colouring. Its such a fabulous card Bonnie and I'm so happy to see you at The Flower Challenge!!

Nonni said...

Oh my heavens, your watercoloring of this image.... This is exactly the look I'd hope to achieve! I either get too harsh lines or everything blends... This looks fantastic! Bravo!
