Gumnut Blossom

Hi everyone,

I have another watercolor card to share with you today. This gumnut blossom is so different and I had never heard of this blossom before and I found it to interesting so I just had to color it. I checked our some photos on google for colors they come in and decided on the bright pink. I printed the image onto artist loft watercolor paper and colored it with peerless watercolors. I decided to flick my brush afterwards with the green and pink to color the background. I decided to use a pencil and then with the pearl grey wrote in the name of the blossom.  I then added a few large sequins and one small sequin.When it was completely dry I layered the piece onto recollections black cs. The base of the cs is SU natural cs. I felt with the colors I used it needed a bit more color so I have used SU melon mombo cs in .25 strips to frame the image. I am pleased how it turned out. 

I will enter this card into this challenge

Wow, I'm very impressed with how well you've coloured the gumnut Carol, especially considering you've never seen one before! Your card is beautiful. I love the way you've echoed the lovely deep pink in the border. Great job.
