Stargazer Happiness

Hi everyone.  Quick post today as I'm off to see my DSIL at the hospital.  I'm way behind on making  a card to honor Mary (Octoberbabe at SCS).  Mary was chosen as Queen for the Day last Friday (QFTD152) and I wanted to make a card to celebrate.  Mary has a gallery full of inspiring cards ... and I chose this card to CASE in her honor - love the simplicity and CAS style.  Congrats Mary!!  I hope you enjoyed your special week!

Stamps:  Fifth Avenue (SU!); Be Happy Sentiments (Amy R)
Paper:  White, watercolor
Ink:  Black, Pretty in Pink, Regal Rose, Rose Red, Certainly Celery, Cajun Craze (SU!)
Accessories & Tools:  water mister, aqua painter, Stamp-a-ma-jig, and dimensionals

I used a watercolored lily that I made a while back and had in my stash so I'm not exactly sure how I made it :)   The image is stamped in black ink onto watercolor paper and then I believe I used a combination of an aqua painter, water mister and ink to color it.  I used Stampin' Write markers to color in the stems, stamens and add more dark pink to the center of each petal (and the dots).

Here's a couple of more pictures of the card:

... and a close-up:

I love that you popped the white rectangle off of the white card base.

Beautiful card Loll! The colouring is fantastic, I've actually been working on some of the same lillies! My hubby said I needed to look at some real flowers to get the shading right, your's is perfect :)

That's a shame you don't remember how you did the lily, Lolly. (Ha, Lilly Lolly!) You absolutely captured the EXACT look of one of those. Dang. Although I've no doubt that you could recreate it perfectly!! The card is CASlicious!!

I hope your day isn't too exhaustipating, my friend. xxoo Dolly
