Watercolor Lillies

This week's challenge at The Play Date Cafe was to use the following color scheme.

This was not a card that came together easy for me. I must have changed the design a dozen times. I guess my creativity developed a hiccup this week. :) Anyway, this is the final product.

The card base is from My Mind's Eye Laundry Line with a little stitching added. The image is a brand new stamp I just bought made by Stampendous. These Star Gazer Lillies are my daughter's favorite flowers. The image was stamped in Stazon black ink and then painted with watercolor pencils. I doubled matted it with the pink and green Bazzill paper and lifted it with pop dots. The border on the right is also from the same My Mind's Eye collection. I used a Martha Stewart scalloped lace punch and then used some Fabri-Tac to add some pretty yellow lace to the back edge. The bow is some more of the beautiful dyed seam binding. I added a small piece of the green for leaves and topped it with a little lace rosette flower I made from some more of the little yellow lace. Some bling, a pearl, and a sentiment stamped in Memento Bamboo Leaves ink complete the card.
Hope you like it. Have a wonderful blessed week!

Sooo pretty, Tracy. You have some lovely creations!! I don't know how long you've been a regular in TSTR but I don't think I've visited you before. These last few weeks have just been so busy. Thank you so much for visiting and leaving me a comment. I appreciate it more than you know!! It looks like maybe we started blogging about the same time. But it also looks like you've left me in the many interesting things to look at in your sidebar!! Keep up the beautiful work...I'm sure I'll visit again soon!
