Daylilies, Trickling Water and Warm Colours

Hello everyone, here we are into December already!

I have another card to show using Design by Ryn's amazing stamp designs.    The images are summer, the colours are fall and our current season is grey but this gave me an escape.

 
The background was created using Raspberry and Marmalade Distress Sprays.  I over stamped with Honey Locust Leaf using Purple Archival  (I stamped off a few times) and Persimmon Distress Inks.  Design by Ryn's negative leaf designs (you can find more here) create awesome backgrounds, I love them.

I stamped the amazing Trickling Water 2 and Water Droplet stamps with Purple Archival ink.  I lightened behind them by adding water, blotting off and then highlighted with a white pen.  Again these water images are amazing, they look 3D.

I stamped Daylily several times, coloured with Inktense pencils (and water), cut them out and and arranged as shown.

Thanks for your visit and have a great day,
Shirleyx

A lovely bright card Shirley. The combination of the ferns and water droplets provide a smashing background for those day lilies. A really lovely vibrant card that does indeed brighten a dull day as Miranda says. Have a great day. Elaine x

Stunning card Shirley, It's damp, dull and raining here at the moment and this has certainly brightened my morning. Although you say the colours are Autumnal this reminds me of hot summer days.

I adore those stamps Shirley you have made them look amazing as usual. The vibrancy of your colours brings a feel of sunshine to such a cold day.

I have been MIA for a while but have just scrolled down to see what I have missed and loved everything I saw.

I am fascinated by the negative leaf stamp, it looks tremendous the way you have coloured it, and the colouring of the whole card background is so beautiful.
It's also great how you have made the flowers, quite spectacular.
