Hi there.  I'm so glad you stopped by!


I have really enjoyed these tulips! They are a joy to watercolor!
Thank you sweet friend for sharing them.

This time I colored them pink.  I added a light wash of blue and some splatters.

What a fabulous job you did watercoloring these gorgeous tulips! You created incredible highlights and shadows, Bonnie! I would have held my breath cutting it too but it turned out so beautifully! This card is really so well done!

I do recognize these tulips! I have one of the ones I painted on my bulletin board. You seem to have perfected the technique or maybe your own technique I should say and boy are your tulips gorgeous. I love the lighter look that you have achieved. Bravo Miss Bonnie!!

What a wonderful coloring! The tulips looks as real ones. I like the idea how to take more dynamic to the card with cutting the panel.
Sorry for my absence and for not commenting your posts.. Today one of my task was canceled and I took the opportuninty to see some of missed posts and write some comments.

Leslie Miller said...

These look ahhhh-mazing, Bonnie! Incredible watercolor, love the white splatters. Words aren't enough. I'm trying to get through my NBUS so I can load up on some Penny Black. Such gorgeous stamps and I do not have enough of them, ha!

Darnell said...

This design just took my breath away, Bon! It needs to be framed like the ones you did a few years back. Your watercoloring is flawless and well done taking the risk and die-cutting the panel for a unique look! Love, Dolly

Heather said...

This is stunning, Bonnie!
And those splatters could be snow that sometimes falls here even on May tulips. Lets hope not this year.

Brenda said...

Gorgeous card Bonnie! I love those tulips and the way you watercolored them. I also love the way you did die cut it, so interesting. Hugs, Brenda
