Pink Dahlia

Roxie here, my card features the dahlia image, sentiment and a couple of the ATC stencils paired up with the Ranger Distress Sprays and the image is colored with Chameleon Pens. 

I used Chameleon Pens to color the image; if you aren't familiar with this product - one marker will do the job of three or more markers of the other brands on the market.
Colors: flower center - Y03, blossoms PK3,PR4, leaves and stem - 0L3, Y03

The pink panel is watercolor paper misted with water and then misted with two colors of distress sprays while wet and once dry the white spray was added.  I then used a couple of the ATC stencils and sponged the design to add character.

Images: SweetStamps - Dahlia, Beautiful Day
Paper: Beckett Expression Radiance - image panel, The Paper Company - white textured, unknown watercolor paper and green for border
Ink: Memento - Tuxedo Black, Ranger Distress Ink - Picked Raspberry
Tools:  1/8" Perfect Layers from Perfect Paper Crafting, Scor-Pal, SweetStamps ATC stencils, sponge
Accessories: foam tape to pop up the image panel, EK Success - Pink Sticko

Beautiful, Roxie! The fuchsia is amazing with those bright green leaves. I've got to try these Chameleon pens!

Lovely card. I like the delicacy of the image.

I love that the flower takes center stage, and your enamel accents and the mixed media side panel (I love pink) are fabulous!

Beautiful coloring on the Dahlia and love how you made the background with the sprays and stencils.
