Siberian Iris

April 30, 2008 at 10:06 am 8 comments

It feels so good to be stamping again!!  Although I am not caught up with work, I realized I needed to stamp to keep my sanity…and I need a Mother’s Day card, so there was no guilt in setting aside time to create.  This card is made with the Siberian Iris set released by Flourishes earlier this month and can you believe it, its the first time I’ve inked up the gorgeous image!  The inspriation came from Leslie Miller’s stunning card shown here.  I embossed the image in black on watercolor paper.  I watercolored using a set of Loew Cornell watercolors I picked up from Michael’s – they were not expensive at all, then carefully cut out the image.  I embossed a white panel with a cuttlebug folder (tapestry I think).  For the rest of the card I matched my watercolors with SU paper – orchid and gable green.  The ribbon is from JoAnn’s.

    Oh, my goodness! This is the most gorgeous watercoloring–and with real paints rather than inks. Love it! I’m glad you found time to stamp. For something we love so much it sure is hard to set time aside for it. Thank you for the mention!

    I love the look in this card! Sorry I’ve not been around for so long. I suscribed (or so I thought) all the blogs with Feedblitz and noticed a few days back that I wasn’t getting all the updates. So, I’m switching readers. I do really love this one. And the other you posted the day after looks so delicate!
