Flower Cart

In April's Third Thursday Tools
mentioned that Patterned Papers were 
my inspiration for Spring!

The next two weeks I will be 
crafting cards with patterned paper!

As you can see I love flowers!

I challenged you to visit and shop with one of your favorite retailers.
That is exactly what I did!
I purchased the Flower Cart stamp at
Peddler's Pack shop located in Beaverton, Oregon.

My color chart showing the colors that I chose to
coordinate with the patterned paper.
For the first time I colored with Distress Markers.
They are a joy and fun to color with!

First, I colored the cart part of the stamped image.
Using the Tim Holtz Water Brush (fine detail nib).
I picked up the color after applying it to the craft sheet.
Brushed Corduroy, Walnut Stain and Mustard Seed.

Second, I colored the flower pots in
Rusty Hinge and Chipped Saphire.

Then I began coloring the flowers!
I colored them directly on the watercolor paper.
Aged Mahogany and Spun Sugar for the flowers.
Peeled Paint and Shabby Shutters for the leaves.
I did use the water brush to "blend" the colors slightly.

The middle flowers I choose blue shades.
Tumbled Glass and Stormy Sky for the flowers.
Peeled Paint, Shabby Shutters and Crushed Olive for the leaves.
A hint of Pumice Stone for the tags.

My final flowers were Dried Marigold and Spiced Marmalade.
Leaves were colored in Peeled Paint and Crushed Olive.

Added a few Jewel Candy Dots on the spokes and pink ribbon!

Now, it is time to start choosing the next color palate!
