EVERYWHERE GREEN

Seems like everywhere I looked this week there were challenges that involved green.  Plus I have been coloring The Greetery's lily die cuts using different mediums - so you will probably be seeing more lilies.



I used the photo as my color guide for my lilies.  First I watercoloured the lilies with some diluted black.  Mixed a variety of greens for all the leaves.  Then I used my polychromos to give some detail to the flowers and leaves.  I stenciled the background for some interest with DO old paper - it matched the lighter greens I used in the flowers so well.  Before attaching the arrangement, I stamped the sentiment.  Added some pale gray enamel dots and done.   

I am entering my card at CAS Watercolour (luck of the Irish-green), TicTacToe#55 (flowers, stencil, die cuts), The Flower Challenge (anything goes), Virginia's Show and Share, Color Throwdown (green and black) and Happy Little Stampers (dies).








Thanks for stopping by and love to read your kind comments.
