More Coneflowers

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

When I made this card, I cut and embossed a few more flowers and backgrounds.
  I finally got around to getting them on cards.

The flowers were all die cut from Neena Solar White and colored with my
Caran d'ache Supracolor Pencils.  After coloring it sharpened the pencil and gently
swiped the side of the point over t petals.  I used the same technique for the cone
atop the flower.  I used the stem from the Alstromeria Bunch die and colored it with pencils.

It sits on a background of Neenah Solar White that was embossed with the 
matching embossing folder.  I love the texture the embossing folder gives to the die cut too.

I added a bit of stamped and heat embossed script around some of the edges.  You
have to look close to see that in the photo.

And a twofer....

I did the die cut flowers the same way but embossed on watercolor paper and lightly 
colored the raised flowers with my Supracolor Pencils.

Then I covered two of them up with the die cut flowers.

You know how much I love the Alstroemeria but these run a close second, Bonnie. The embossing really brings those coneflowers to life as does your wonderful pencil coloring.

Lovely coneflower twofers and so beautifully coloured as always.

These coneflowers are beautiful Bonnie and love the cute bee on the first and the added embossed flowers in the background together with the embossed script, and the added stem and sentiment are great. The second card is pretty with the flowers and the pink strip down the side of the card, and some pretty gems too. x

I love these coneflowers and your extra color on the tips, it really makes them stand out.

Beautiful coneflowers! The first one is great with the embossed background. The second is so soft and pretty with the various shades of pink.

Such a beautiful cone flower and I love the little bee ♥

Brenda said...

Both of these cards are amazing Bonnie! I love this flower and little bee on the matching embossed background. It amazes me how you get the cone part of the flower looking so fluffy! The clear embossing really adds that something, something...love that! Your second card is equally beautiful, love the cluster of these fabulous flowers! Hugs, Brenda
