Flippin' Friday: Purple Peaceful Petals

Happy Friday! It's been a while since I did a Flippin' Friday here's one for you that's pretty & purple!

This ruffley looking dahlia is fun to watercolor! First, I stamped the image in Black Stazon onto Whisper White card stock. As usual, I used my Aqua Painter and inks pooled in the lids of my ink pads. These are the colors I used:

  • Wisteria Wonder
  • Rich Razzleberry
  • Elegant Eggplant
  • Crushed Curry

Then I punched out the flower using a 2-1/2" Circle Punch which fits perfectly onto the Thinlet Flip Card base.

I used the Needlepoint Border Embossing Folder to decorate the edges and the Beautifully Baroque EF to give a nice pattern to the base of the card.

Many times when I'm watercoloring, I will stamp numerous images and color all at the same time. That's exactly what I did this of each flower in the Peaceful Petals set. I've already shared the other two cards in the past week. Here is a look at the Peaceful Petals Trio.

This would make a nice set of cards to give as a gift...make a pretty box that coordinates and include matching envelopes.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Wow! All three cards are gorgeous! I love the purples and the water coloring is just perfect. It certainly inspired me to get busy water coloring with my aqua painter and inks. You do such amazing work.
