Cheery Lynn Designs Flower Power Blog Hop

Hi there, welcome to our Cheery Lynn Designs Blog Hop, where our theme this month is Flower Power.  



You should have arrived here from Jenny's blog, but if you didn't please hop back onto the Cheery Lynn Designs Blog so you don't miss out on any inspiration.


To create my card I started out by cutting out a trifold card base and I die cut the card front folds using the Ornament #14 Die, which I have been wanting to use for a long time.

Next I die cut the Floral Bouquet Kit 8 Piece Die setChrysanthemumGardenia Strip and the Feathered Friends out of water color card stock.  If you frequent my blog, you already know I love to water color, so my favorite technique to work with flowers is also water coloring.  I always use water color papers and love how the flowers just come alive after painting them.  Once I painted my flowers I put them together.


I tied a ribbon around my card to have a closure for it and started layering my flowers and bird and finally added some pearls in the middle of the flowers.  I also die cut one of the elements from the Floral Bouquet Kit 8 Piece Die set using gold foil card stock to tuck in between the flowers.


Hope you like this card and here is the list of the dies I used to create it:

I like how you often use water colors in your projects. It adds just a little something to your card. The bird, of course, is my favorite as your coloring of him is perfect. Could you please make a tutorial on how you colored him? I need to learn how to color better.
