The Language of Flowers...Lilly...
Today's flower and meanings is the Lily, this image was drawn form a vase of Lilies I had on my mantelpiece I loved the intricate lines of the flowers in the vase and so decided to draw them, this was the first drawing I made for this collection.
This card is a little different with the black and white stamped image overlaid with panels stamped to match and coloured a little different but I love it.
The next card is a little more normal and uses some of the flourishes form the matching Lilly set. I coloured the image using watercolour pencils pulling the colours out using a water brush. I followed this side colouring the border strip which is stamped form the clear set in the same manner and using colour cloud in soft cerise and lemon meringue on the background ( made using another of the backgrounds I will share on Saturday)
here is the lily clear set followed by the A6 rubber stamp of the single spray.
