"Tiger Lily"

Sunday, May 23,2010

Rose wanted to take this opportunity to thak everyone for there kind comments about the pictures of her plastic canvas creations that I posted for her. I am in the process of setting up an "Etsy" shop for her. I will put the addie in my signature as soon as it is open.

Now on to card making.

Friday morning I was pleased to see that our "Tiger Lilies" in our garden were in full bloom. So I decided to do a card honoring these beauties. They put so much joy in our lives. The card is a simple card, but shows off the beauty that nature provides us.

"Tiger Lily"

The image for this card is from the "Stamping Studio" and the name of the image is FOTM2-5 Lily. It's a very pretty image and consists of two different sizes of the lily and the saying "Lily". I of course colored the lily with Copic Markers and airbrushed the background. The paper used on this card were from "DCWV" and the pad is called "Pocket full of Posies". The lily was colored than masked and left in the Spellbinder die while it was airbrushed. I stamped the background paper using a stamp from "The Angel Company" called "Curls and Swirls" for a little depth.

The Copic colors used for this image were;
Tiger Lily; Y13,YR16,YR18
Stem; YG07,YG17
Background; B01,YG05

Well, that's it for today, I hope you enjoy my redition of a "Tiger Lily". Your comments are always welcome. By the way I worked from a photo that I took of the "Tiger Lily".

Have a GREAT DAY!!!
Bob L.

    Great shading on the petals Bob, they look so lifelike! And your airbrushing just gets better each time.. very smooth... even layering! It's interesting to see how you mixed up the number of jewels you used along the edge and corners. Thanks for sharing! :)

    Very pretty, Bob, and love your coloring. Thanks for sharing your "garden". I have a friend that uses the photos themselves for her cards, so you could even do a "quickie" card with your picture.

    Absolutely Beautiful! It's amazing how you are able to recreate nature in your cards! I will have to work on that and see if I can come close to what you are able to do! Nature is the best place to observe and grow as an individual and I am glad that you bring that into all of our lives through your work! Happy Creatingd! Sara
