The Flower Challenge

Hello! I hope everyone is well. Today I have a card for a challenge new to me -The Flower Challenge #4 - Blue & Yellow.

For this card I've used another stamp I purchased and hadn't gotten to play with yet, The Ton - Happiest of Peonies. Peonies are one of my favorite flowers. I white heat embossed the image on watercolor paper and then used my Zig markers with a water brush to color. As you can see I'm still learning to use my markers and need lots of practice.

I die cut the watercolor panel with a stitched rectangle die, adhered it to my card base and added some candy dots to embellish.

I am also entering this into NBUS Challenge #9, without the optional theme this time. I have a mountain of new stamps to make time to play with, so I hope to make another card this week using the theme.

Thanks for stopping in. I hope everyone is having a lovely week. Enjoy!



  1. This is such a beautiful watercoloured card Pam. Such pretty yellow flowers too.Thank you so much for sharing with us over at 'The Flower Challenge' and we hope to see you again soon ;) Viv DT xx

  2. Aren't those Ziggies fun to watercolor with, Pam? I just adore the sunshine yellow you achieved on your peonies! (I love them, too, having grown up with them in the yard in Iowa when I was a kid!) You did a beautiful card for the blue and yellow Flower Challenge! Thank you so much for playing in my NBUS Challenge #9 and thank you, too, for your kind get well wishes!! Hugs, Darnell

  3. I'm with you. I see other artist make watercoloring look so easy and mine never looks that way. Definitely a learning curve. Your card is very pretty though.

  4. You watercolor so well. I love the look and colors. Beautiful work!
