Springtime Floral Watercolor Card

card 1
My poor baby has been sick with a virus and high fever for days, so no crafting for this mama.  Thankfully I remembered that I forgot to post this card I made with my new Graciellie digital stamps.  So I have a pretty springtime floral card for you today.
card 2
 My friend Carol had given me this cool braille paper I thought it would be pretty to watercolor, it has such a nice texture.
card 3
 I added some light script stamping in black for contrast.  I really roughed up this background and like the depth it gave.
card 4
 How can you not love this beautiful flower image!  So pretty, well done Gracie!

Oh, Autumn, I'm so sorry that your precious baby has been sick! I've prayed for you and her and trust that she will be feeling better soon! It's wonderful how God allowed you to have a special card like this one that you haven't shown us yet to have a post today. It's gorgeous, and I so love Gracie's digis. You've made a stunning card with your amazing mixed media magic! Hugs and praying, sweet friend! xoxo

Oh, Autumn, I'm sorry your little one has been sick! This floral card is as amazing as the others from this set! I do love the colors and your embellishments, but you know I love all of your projects and they're so inspirational! I, too, haven't been able to craft much in the last week or so...hoping to be able to get back to it! Sending prayers for your little one to get better soon.

I hope your little one is recovered!! Love this beautiful, bright card..... and as always, all the elements/layering - you've such a good eye for these! xxx Lynn

MaryH said...

Amazing summer hot shades on the pretty background for this gorgeous flower. Wonderful embellishments to add more beauty & layers. I have never heard of 'Braille paper', but it certainly created a fab background in your hands (I'm guessing this is used for the Braille books?). Your card is wonderful, and I hope your little one is much better by now. Also wanted to say a Big Congratulations on your new DT assignment, which I read about at Lisa's blog! I know this challenge picked 2 superlative crafters to head the team! TFS 7 Hugs

Diana Taylor said...
