The Flower Challenge #41

I swore 2020 was going to be the year of florals and watercoloring but I'm doing a sad job of keeping up with that crafty resolution.  Today I'm giving at least one of them another go.

The current theme of the Flower Challenge is "add leaves."  I'm not exactly sure what that means as most of my floral images do indeed have leaves so we'll leave this up to their interpretation.

Kathy Racoosin did such a beautiful job coloring this stamp while at the MFT Boutique last December so of course I HAD to buy it.  Now if only I could remember her tips.  (I plan on purchasing her Online Classes course soon to refresh my memory.)  

This particular stamp is HUGE.  I only used part of the image for my card.  

Dare I show a closer look at my coloring? 
 Disclaimer...I am not an expert.

Baby Steps.  It's still only February.  :-)

Happy Crafting!



  1. Pretty little baby steps, Julie! The words I remember from my class with Kathy are 'nooks & crannies.' My lesson is: never stop practicing! Wonderful card!

  2. What a beautiful CAS card, Julie! You colored the subtle folds of the petals beautifully. I wish we have blue magnolias in real life! Thank you so much for joining us at The Flower Challenge! As you guessed it is supposed to be a super easy challenge :) !
