Delicate Flower
by Penny Ward

Delicate-flowers

Hello Memory Box friends. Penny here today with a bit of watercoloring and a very delicate flower. I love the simplicity of the card and how the Budding Peony stands out with its vibrant color. I saw a card layout on the CardMaker Magazine blog with the checks and flowers and just knew I had to create something like it.

Here's how it's done:

 

Make a White cardstock base trimmed 4.25 x 11 inches, then folded in half. Use a Black marker and color about 1/4 inch of the top edge.

Cut watercolor paper 4  x 5.50 inches. Paint gray stripes both vertical and horizontal, let dry. 

Curve the bottom left edge with scissors (I used a bread plate as a guide) then attach to card base.

On a large scrap of watercolor paper, sprinkle some Lindy's Magicals and mist with water. In my example I used Autumn Maple Crimson, Time Travel Teal and Rusty Lantern Lime. 

Die cut this panel with Budding Peony and Sprouting Vine.

Adhere to card front as shown.

Stamp and heat emboss sentiment from So Many Things to Love. Trim ends and adhere to card front with foam adhesive.

Add Ebony Black Crystal Drops as desired.

 

Happy Crafting my friends,

Pennysignature
