MIM #154 & Virginia's View

Make It Monday ~ 
Color and Texture Tips for One Layer Cards Challenge 
Virginia's View - Challenge #1 
Which you can check out HERE
Virginia Lu has started a new Challenge where she shows an inspirational photo and adds a required technique or element, this one is "use watercolor". 
As Virginia explains, it is similar to the Tuesday Trigger from Moxie Fab World that so many of us miss.  It's a GREAT idea :-)

My last card for the week ~ this one is going in the mail tomorrow for a dear friend in MA. 
I used Raspberry pink ink to stamp this jumbo peony flower (Stampendous) onto Stamper's Select White (PTI) cardstock, then used three different shades of pink watercolors to paint it in.  The center has Yellow Stickles and the sentiment (Spiral Bouquet by PTI) is inked in a Smokey Grey.


  1. Helen, your card is absolutely stunning!

  2. Well, hello, sweet Helen! I love how you colored the large flower with the watercolors. The shading of colors really enhances the depth of this design! Thanks so much for linking up to the first Virginia's View Challenge!

  3. This is Beautiful Helen!!! Love the pink colors :)

  4. Wow this is one really stunning card


  5. Looking through all of the entries of V's challenge, yours really popped out at me! Love your beautiful watercolored peony, Helen!

  6. So very beautiful Helen, I love it :) Viv xx

  7. Your card is exquisite! I love the vibrant color of the peony.
