Morning Glories or Petunias??

I just felt like watercoloring and grabbed this image from SU.  I did them in shades of pinks, which has me thinking that they look like petunias.  I searched for some dp to go with this image, and decided I'd make it a clean card.  I like how it turned out.

Color Challenge 324 - Spring Iris...

Karen Barber picked some lovely colors for today's color challenge.  They are perfect plum, soft suede, and baja breeze.  I softly water colored my Siberian Iris from Flourishes.  I put an embossed layer behind my flower and popped the flower up.  I really like the colors.

CC323, Sweet peas from Flourishes...

This is the second card I made for this week's challenge.  Rich razzleberry, regal rose, and vanilla were the colors.  I incorporated some black and dp to match.  Such a fun color challenge and lots of nice cards on SCS showing it.

CC323, Cherry Blossoms with a butterfly

This is the first card I made for this week's color challenge.  We were to use rich razzleberry, regal rose, and vanilla.  What a lovely combination.  The butterfly was the dessert this week.  I matched the dp I used.

Dark, Vintage Sunflowers...

This was supposed to be a color challenge card, but it was seen that these colors were posted on the CC247 challenge.  Before I knew that I created the card.  My sunflowers are stamped in soft suede with a bit of black.  I tore the edges and sponged with both colors, giving it a burnt or vintage look. I used a piece of dp and a decorative brad from SU.

SC332, Medallion in Hiding...

This was the sketch challenge card for Wednesday's sketch.  I flipped the sketch.  My colors were pixie pink and black, with white.  I used the medallion.  Do you see it??

Hollyhocks in blushing bride...

I was purely experimenting today when stamping my hollyhocks image from Mark's Finest Papers.  I used blushing bride to watercolor them, some dp with similar colors, and also did a bit of dry embossing.  I used ribbon and made a sentiment using similar colors as well.  I'm happy with the way it turned out.

CC322, Pansies in Springtime...

This card was made for this week's color challenge.  The colors were so saffron, certainly celery, and blushing bride.  I watercolored the pansies in these colors and added some designer paper with similar colors.  I used ribbon and the desert option of a floral button.  Thanks for looking and enjoy all of the blooming that's going on.  :>)

CC321, FLLC, White Orchids...

Today's color challenge is number 321 with the colors of crumb cake, cherry cobbler, and black.  I was asked to be a guest of the CC hostess for the month of May.   I was and still am excited about it, as it is really one of my most favorite challenges.
I used a beautiful floral image from Flourishes;  it is the Orchid set.  I water colored it.  I used some great dps from Basic Grey, and a bow out of seam binding ribbon.  Very fun, and a nice color combination I think.  Have a great day!!  :>)

Spontaneous Mother's Day Card...

I started cleaning up my desk a bit today and found this image from Flourishes already colored.  These are magnolias that I colored with copics.  The designer papers are from Basic Grey.  The solid colors are pretty in pink, pink pirouette, and early expresso all from SU.  The lace is from Mark's Finest Papers.  The corner punch was done with a SU punch, and the gem was from Hobby Lobby.  It was nice to use some of the things that have been sitting on my desk.

I hope all of the mom's out there have a nice day.  I only have my Shih tzus, which is mostly a joy.  Being a mother is a full time job that never ends.  God bless you all.  :>)
