I LOVE to color flowers. Here are the first few cards of my complete twelve-month set. I am using Flourishes’ A Year In Flowers sets. I think the cards will be nice for the recipient to use for birthdays or weddings in the corresponding month. (Super secret bizarre fact about me: I don’t send out cards to people. (GASP) I mainly give them as gifts) I posted my prototypes a few days back, here. What did my prototypes teach me? Well, for me, I find it easiest to color my background first. Then I do not have to worry about accidentally blending the image colors into the background. I used colored pencils with odorless mineral spirits. The paper and ribbon are PTI. I used an EK Success punch for the bottom border.
Have lovely, lovely day!
