Spring Gerberas


Got my timings a bit wrong today.  One of the challenges I made this card for, Muse, has just closed.  But one door challenge closes, another one opens.  The latest Simon Says Monday Challenge is to use yellow.  Ok then!



The current Uniko Studio challenge is Spring/Easter using this colour scheme:


And the challenge at City Crafter is Paint It - create a card or project that includes a painted background.


I stamped the images in Versamark and white embossed them, masking the flowers while I did the leaves, then watercoloured the panel using Scattered Straw, Mustard Seed, Bundled Sage and Weathered Wood Distress Inks, then matted it onto a piece of brown(ish) card.

  2. The image and the way you handled it gives the impression of being an oil placed on white backer board. VERY nicely done.
