A Gnome and Flowers


There are so many expert artists out there that inspire me daily. I ooh and aah and study all the amazing creations. I appreciate all forms of coloring, from colored pencils, to markers, to watercolor. 


This card is for the My Favorite Things 2017 Card Design Superstar Challenge-Coloring Virtuoso. I did some no-line watercoliring with one of the cuties from You Gnome Me. I then added some light stamping with flowers from Sketched Flowers in the background, starting with loose watercoloring on the bottom and ended up with detailed flowers toward the sky.


I finished the card with a sentiment from More Essential Sentiments. This card was a labor of love, I had to work in small areas at a time, to allow the paint to dry. I used a mixture of traditional watercolors and Color Bursts.
