Watercolor Bloom

Hello, Crafty Friends -

I hope you are enjoying the holiday weekend. I’m in the process of moving and my craft supplies are all packed. However I did plan ahead, a bit, and made a couple of cards to share with you. Including this pretty water colored thank you card:


I just love this bloom from the Flower Garden set and thought it would look delightful colored in pinks, oranges, and yellows. I used my trusty Sakura Koi watercolors and a water brush to color the image. In full disclosure… this is my second attempt. The first one didn’t turn out the greatest. ;)

Once dry I added a bit of glitter to the flower center and along the leaves. And a few sequins.


I didn’t want to detract from the bloom so I kept the layout very simple and used a lot of white. I die cut a sentiment flag and stamped the “thank you” from Simple Sayings on it in Archival Jet Black ink. I punched a hole in the one end and tied a bow using a bit of baker’s twine.


So what do you think? I’m always delighted to read your comments.
