Sketchy Flowers for Paper Players #358

Hi Everyone.  Happy Sunday.

It's the fabulous Joanne's turn to host our Paper Players challenge this week and she has a challenge that should be right up my alley!  

Now... this is a GREAT challenge and ... as I said...should have been right up my alley.   But.. I have done so many cards with coloring recently - especially pencil coloring - that I decided to try and do something different. 

I pulled out some Holbein watercolor paints in a gorgeous shade of pink and paired that with some gold embossed Sketchy Flowers. 

I began by gold embossing the flowers onto a piece of Hot Pressed watercolor paper and colored the flowers with the Holbein paints.  I cut the front panel to 5 and a quarter inches and added a piece of foil gold washi tape to the outer edge.  It doesn't look that flat in the photo because it reflects so much light:-)   I die-cut a sentiment in gold mirror cardstock and mounted that to the card base.

Here's my card:

Sketchy Flowers (1 of 1)

To finish off the card, I added some gold splatters and some gold glitter Nuvo drops to the center of the flowers.  I love the pink and gold together - although it is NOT a color combo that I would normally use.  However, Rose and gold seems to be a trendy color combo these days.  Not that I ever consider myself in the least bit trendy :-)

I hope you will join our challenge this week.  If you are looking for some inspiration - you have to look no further than our the creations from our amazing design team:

I will be back tomorrow with some blog candy and a little fun!  I do hope you will join me :-)  In the meantime, warm hugs and prayers for those of you who need a little lift tonight.

I was hoping you would have a fabulous coloured floral creation to share this week Jaydee and you so did not disappoint! I love the gorgeous pink flowers, not a colour I see you use often - so pretty with the touches of gold. When it comes to colouring, you're a whizz!


Just beautiful!

laurie beautiful Jaydee! I think gold and pinks look so awesome together, and your water coloring is so soft and pretty.

Have a great day!

Pink and gold - a classic combination. The flowers are gorgeous but I think the golden drops and arty gold splatters are the details that ice the cake. Lovely!

Annie Abrahamson

Gold embossing is so elegant and pairs beautifully with your gorgeous pink watercolored flowers! A very classy card, Jaydee!


Sorry I am so late in commenting this week! This is gorgeous, and as you said, right up your alley! Your florals are beautiful and accented with that big gold's perfect!
