Tiger Lilies Card (Jane's Doodles DT Spotlight)

Hi everyone! :o)

On Tuesday, May 15th, was my turn to be on the spotlight over at Jane's Doodles and I made this Tiger Lilies Card:o)

This card is a CASE of a card I made for my mom and shared it two weeks ago (find it here). I went with same design, layout and used same stamps, but went with different color scheme and used different techniques and mediums for coloring. :o)

Mom of a lovely young lady, for whom I created this card, loves orange color. I immediately knew I should go with Tiger Lilies. Gorgeous flower! :o)

How I made the card...

For my card I used stamps from two GORGEOUS Jane's Doodles stamp sets: Lily and Mother's Day.


With some masking, I stamped lilies directly on a white top folded card base.

I colored lilies with various coloring mediums. First I blended Distress Ink. I used negative part of masks to protect white background and ink blended lilies. I splattered lilies with water, dried them and repeated the process one more time.

I removed masks, added extra shades on lilies and colored green parts with colored pencils and fine liners. Dimension was missing, so I colored shades using grey colored pencil.

Then I heat embossed in black word ‘Mama’, which is Croatian for mom.

Lastly, I drew brown dots on lilies using fine liner and added some white highlights with white gel pen and the card was finished. :o)

Card dimensions: 95 mm x  133 mm (3 3/4" x 5 1/4")
