Stylish Flower...


This time I wanted to draw a different flower, to be painted in one color and I wanted it to have an elegant appearance. Then I drew this very simple and stylish flower© that looks like a cone-flower with few leaves. I also draw a couple flourishes to make the sketch more interesting.
For this card I printed the drawing twice to give the flower a 3D effect. I outlined the sketch with the Perfect Medium pencil, Bullet, from Ranger and used copper embossing powders, which gave the picture a beautiful sheen. I also used a glossy designer paper that highlights the little flowers. The ornament on the right was made with Bazzill cardstock and painted with glitter paint. Finally, I added three brown rhinestones that brings to the card a very elegant luster.

Image of EdithDesigns© (me!), Bazzill cardstock, 140 lb watercolor paper, DCWV Glossy Glitter cardstock The Rustic Stack, Cuttlebug Victoria and Corner embossing folders, Spellbinders Shapeabilities Pendants In Spades, Ranger's Perfect Medium Bullet Pencil, Tim Holtz Distress Embossing Powders, Satin Green Ribbon, Recollections Brown Rhinestones Stickers, off white silk thread and my sewing machine.
