Water Lily and Water Colors

Water Lily and Water Colors

I am giving another try to the digi stamp and coloring. I asked my artsy daughter to assist me with blending. She kindly pointed out that her bowl of colored pencils is more than colored pencils. Some of them are “water color” pencils. She taught me how to add water either to the pencil tip itself or on the paper either before or after coloring. I love it! It blends so nicely. I was really excited! New toys are always fun–especially when you find that you have the skill to make them work.

My customer wanted a card for her adult daughter’s birthday. She told me that her daughter likes silver and turquoise. She also has two cats which she is very fond. I know the daughter. I find her to be refined and elegant. I chose A Day For Daisies image titled Vintage Water Lily Dress.

The first step is to choose the look.

I printed several copies of the image so that I could play with layers. The cats are not part of the original image. I cut them with my Pazzles, adding some color to the black kitty to reflect the actual cat. Enjoy my card.

I am sharing this card at A Day for Daisies’ blog in Challenge #135, Add Watercolor. Will you join us?

  1. krista, what a beautiful and elegant card! love all the details including watercoloring with pencils and the dimension. the sentiment in silver is gorgeous,
    great job!
    the coloring gets under your skin pretty fast, huh? :D. i am kind of liking it too. especially the watercolor. i find it relaxing. the markers are a bit different. they tend to stress me out a bit when i can’t blend colors as well as others, my spectrum noirs are not up to the game 🙁 but for now they fit the bill :D.
    take care and hope you had a great thanksgiving.
