Here’s another example of how Designer Series Paper (DSP) can do the most of the design work for you. My colour palette came directly from the panel of Artistry Blooms DSP. I just adore the ombré designs in this pack! Then I cut out a cluster of blooms from a piece of the black-and-white True Love DSP.
To colour in the flowers I pulled out my Watercolor Pencils. It’s been a while since I’ve used them, and I’d forgotten how much I enjoy them. It’s fun to layer colours…I did this 3 different ways on this card! I used a light tone all over and added dark tone with the same pencil on the Rich Razzleberry and Calypso Coral flowers, I used 2 complimentary shades on the Granny Apple Green and Old Olive leaves, and I layered colours on the orange flower, first all over lightly with Calypso Coral and then Daffodil Delight, and darker Pumpkin Pie for shading.
I matted the DSP layer with a very thin border of Basic Black, which helps ground the flowers and sentiment. The card base is Rich Razzleberry.
The sentiment is from Best Year, and the die is from Pierced Blooms. A simple bow out of the Blackberry Bliss Striped Ribbon and a few Champagne Rhinestones finish it off.
I’ve got a couple more True Love flower cards to share with you later this week…make sure you’re subscribed to the Nancy’s Nifty Notemakers Facebook Group in order to see them!
