Morning Glory

Wednesday, June 23, 2010


Welcome to my blog. I hope you like and are inspired by some of my cards to create a new cards yourself.
Todays card is of a "Morning Glory". I don't remember what company the stamp came from, but if you know, let me know so that I can make a note of it.

The image was stamped on watercolor paper and colored with Derwent Inktense watercolor pencils. The reason I like to work with these pencils is the vibrancy of the colors. One other advantage of these pencils is that once the first color is dry, it can be shaded with the next color without disturbing the first color. You can see this in the flowers.

And here is my rendition of the flower;


"Morning Glory"

The patterned paper used is from "The Angel Company". The cardstock use is from "WinWorld" the Colormate series.

For those of you that like to use Watercolor Pencils, you really need to try the "Derwent Inktense" watercolor pencils. One suggestion, if you by them, buy atleast the set of 24 colors or higher. These sets give a much larger selection of colors.

Have fun, practice with what every coloring medium you chose. Each one has thier own characteristics. You will find the one that suits your coloring preference.

Your comments are always welcome and appreciated.

Have a GREAT DAY!!!

    Beautiful Bob! I like how you have the background papers on an angle-- and how the flowers differ. Love to the final touch of the "prisma" flower (?). Sorry I don't know the morning glory company.. but you did color it and shade it with perfection!

    Thanks so much for sharing and inspiring one and all.

    One of my favorite flowers. I love how you offset the flower and the pinker colors on the back one. Also like the use of the triangles under the picture. As always you make me want to color and create.
