One more floral card :) - Chrysanthemum

Hello everyone! 

I'm popping in to share a floral card with you today. I'm trying to color floral images during current The Dailymarker 30 day Coloring challenge as often as I can. And the digital floral stamps by EunJi, which she is releasing during September, are just right for this challenge. 

The digi-stamp on my card is called Botanical Chrysanthemum.  If you want to see the gorgeous creation by Eunji click here.  

And this is my card! 

When I color flowers, I always google for it to see the color combination, the highlights, shades, the veins on the petals etc. For the Chrysanthemum of my card I chose this picture as my reference. 

I used R81, R83, R85 and R 89 to color the Chrysanthemum flower. For the leaves and stem I used various YR colors. But I didn't like how they turned out and corrected them using Polychromos colored pencils. The gold heat embossed sentiment is from Large Florals: Carnation set by The Ton. I cut the panel using Double Stitched Rectangle die and foam mounted it on a dark red cardbase. 

To finish off I added clear WOS on the flower and some dew drops using Glossy Accents.

I really love the colors of R81 - 89 Copics, kinda burgundy red!

I'm going to enter this card into Addicted to CAS #120: Florals and Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Clean and Simple.

Thank you so much for stopping by!!!

This is STUNNING!!!! Not sure I can use a digi stamp to color on with an ink jet, but might just give it a try!

I saw this on Instagram, TaeEun. I usually Google flowers too and yours looks so much like the photograph it's difficult to tell them apart.
