Blue Dogwood

Hello! I can't seem to get enough of coloring these dogwood flowers. This time I did them in blue.

I colored in the flower center with yellow, but decided I didn't like it and would add pearls to it later. For the petals, I started with B66.

Added B24.

Then added B21, leaving some highlighted areas with no color at all.

For the leaves, I started with G07.

Added G03.

Then filled in with YG21. After coloring I cut out the flower. I also colored several of the smaller flowers and cut those out, too.

I cut a piece of Pure Luxury Cardstock with the largest Spellbinders Labels 23 die. Then I sponged Memento Summer Sky ink while it was still in the die.

Then sponged with Memento Danube Blue.

I cut another piece of Pure Luxury White, using Spellbinders Lacey Circles Die and sponged lightly with Danube Blue. I stamped the sentiment, from Heartfelt, and adhered it to the background with Pop Dots. The flowers were all adhered with Pop Dots and I added self adhesive pearls to cover up the yellow centers. I layered with Pure Luxury In The Navy and used a Baby Boy Blue card base (4 1/4 by 5 1/2 inches). I used Spellbinders Classic Scallop Edgeabilities to cut the bottoms of the In the Navy and Baby Boy Blue. Then I lined the inside of the card base with Pure Luxury White.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have a great day!

I can never bring myself to color a flower in a color that it doesn't naturally appear so I'd never think of blue dogwoods! LOL! As always, your card is beautiful. I love your cardmaking style.
