Lotus flowers

Hello everyone! 
It's been a while since I posted my last card. It was a busy week :).

Today I have a set of 4 cards to share with you, which I made using the Lotus stamp set from Waffle Flower. As I saw the Inspiration photo over at Waffle Flower Challenge blog, I thought the color palette could be a perfect one  for this stamp set. And I used  various coloring media here to compare them.

The lotus on the first card was colored with Copic markers. I added shadows in grey (Copic) and blended DIs for the background. The gold heat embossed sentiment is from the same stamp set. The frame is a negative die cut which was in my stash. 

I used the watercolor lifting technique for the second card. First I white heat embossed the image and blended blue DIs. I then removed the colors from the image using clear water and colored them again with Zig brush pens and clear Wink of Stella. The bottom area of the petals and the back of the leaves which look grey here are the glittery part. I mounted the watercolor panel slightly tilted on a kraft card base and added some sequins. I really like the blue shades showing through the flower petals. 

These lotus flowers on the third card were colored using Prismacolor pencils. I added some gold paint on the edges and gold splatters. 

For the last card I stamped the images using Distress inks and colored them with Zig brush pens. I made the background by blending some DIs. I then cut the rectangle frame from a textured light blue CS with my Cricut and mounted it as shown in the picture after I cut the outline of the leaves and stems.

I want to link up the second card over at Waffle Flower Challenge April 2016 and the last card at SimonSaysStamp Work it Wednesday Challenge March 2016: PASTEL.

Thank you for stopping by!
Enjoy the spring!

I am blown away with your coloring skills, TaeEun! Your Copic coloring on the first card is amazing, and I love how you added shadows in gray! The dreamy feel of your 2nd card is so soft and lovely, and I love how you blended your background! Fabulous effects with your pencils on the 3rd one, and Zig pens on the last card...WOW! This post really shows off your incredible skills coloring one stamp set, and as always, I am so impressed!!!

Four really beautiful cards using this Lotus flower TaeEun but I think my favourite is the second with that pretty blue background and the lovely way you have bleached the colour out and added extra colour to the tips of the leaves which emphasises them perfectly and the WOS looks great. x
