tiger lily for you...

Hello!!  Stopping in with another card I made using a Concord & 9th stamp set and my Prisma color pencils.  This time I used the beautiful Lily stamp set.  I stamped the lily on Bristol cardstock with VersaFine Vintage Sepia ink.  Once that was done I googled what different lilies looked like and decided to try to color up a tiger lily.  Like most lily varieties tiger lilies come in different colors including red with touches of orange.  I used three shades of red and a yellow orange for my flower.  Once I was done I simply die cut the image with a rectangle die, stamped the sentiment (also from the Lily stamp set) and then added a strip of black cardstock along one side before adhering everything to a red cardstock base.  A few tiny cold sequins finished things off.  I also finished the inside of the card with a simple partial image of the lily and then the sentiment "Happy Birthday" from the Concord & 9th Butterfly Beauty set.  I pretty pleased with my coloring on this one, but I know I still have much to leave to achieve more depth of color.  Going to add this to the current Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge to make a birthday card.
Wishing you a wonderful day...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI Pure Poppy, PTI True Black, Bristol; Stamps:  Concord & 9th; Dies:  A Jillian Vance Design; Ink:  VersaFine Vintage Sepia and Onyx Black; Coloring medium:  Prisma color pencils

Fabulous colouring on your lily Rosie, I love lilies as long as the perfume is not too strong. 🌺
