Beautiful Watercolour Pencil Floral Bouquet – Playing Cards with Michele!

Do you like to accept a challenge? You know what….. I did!

Today I am Playing Cards with Friends, specifically my incredible friend Michele from I Card Everyone!

And here is the drill, it’s for ‘National Gardening Day’ and here’s me without even a green toe, let alone finger or thumb lol.
Showers or Flowers…. Something New…. and I can’t use Blue! eek,
How do you do a ‘shower’ without blue haha, so I did find a way….. kinda, and I know you have seen me use this product before now, but when I acutally coloured this image the Watercolor Coloring Book from Altenew was ‘new to me’, is that going to pass the challenge? and finally Blue, is purple a shade of blue…. no? Phew!

Now, let’s see how it turned out!

Lostinpaper - Altenew Watercolor Coloring Book - PAF Carnations (card) 1

I decided to try one of the ‘no-line’ images and colour with the Woodless Watercolor Pencils and I added a simple sentiment from the Paint-A-Flower: Carnations set.

and as for my ‘shower’, how about some clear droplets?


I can’t wait to see what Michele has created using this challenge, you can check out her blog post right HERE, and psssst, I would recommend following her too as her cards are always an inspiration! Thanks so much my friend for asking me to play along I have had a blast!! Big Crafty hugs to you all,

  1. Therese, you’ve conquered my challenge with flying colors – particularly the grey!! However, one cannot make purple without blue, can one?? I’m going to look the other way – especially since I think this is the most beautiful card I’ve seen this week!
    Thank you SO much for playing cards with me, my friend!! xo
    =]

    1. hahahaha you’ve got me there my friend, I did add the grey for you though, I knew you would appreciate it! Thank you for letting me play along with your challenge, I seriously had such a fun time colouring for fun! Big Playing Cards with Friends Crafty hugs to you x

  2. Beautiful card. Love the colours, though you were most definitely pushing it with the purple, naughty girl. The use of the grey card makes a lovely contrast with the white background and complements the coolness of the blues (purple) beautifully. We all love it ❤️

  3. Be still, my heart! This is absolutely GORGEOUS, Therese! I love your no-line coloring with your watercolor pencils and how you added texture to your card base…Perfect in every way, my friend ~ xx

    1. Those watercolour pencils really added some fun texture over top of the painting, it looked so different before that I wish I had of taken a photo… Thanks so much Barb, so happy you like it!

  4. WOW ! This is gorgeous, Therese. No blue…it would have been hard for me but for sure these flowers are exactly in the right colour with these stunning purple shades you succeeded to give with your no-line watercolouring. Soft and so delicate. Stunning !

  5. What a Beautiful…Gorgeous card! I love the soft colors and delicate shading. You, Therese, always inspire me; make me laugh and encourage me to stretch my ‘creative wings’! Thank you so much for sharing your Art!♥

  6. GASP! You’ve hit all the Playing Cards criteria…PERFECTLY. What a gorgeous card. Love the color and coloring (wink) and the way you mounted and enhanced it with the “drops”. Simply lovely.

  7. LOVELOVELOVE the way you colored this! (even if purple has blue in it) and the grey is just the right touch.

  8. Oh what a beautiful card and your colors of gray and purple-ist blue are so graceful!!! Soft and elegant! I can’t think of enough words to describe your card.

  9. Wow, Therese … what awesome colouring … this is soooo beautiful … soft, elegant, chic! How fabulous that you and Michele got to play cards together virtually … next stop IRL! Hugs, Anita 🙂
