Watercoloring White Flowers with Kristina Werner – September 2019 Card Kit Inspiration

Watercoloring White Flowers with Kristina Werner – September 2019 Card Kit Inspiration

Hello, all! Kristina Werner here with some more inspiration using with September 2019 Card Kit! :)

The large flowers in the Look For Rainbows stamp set from the kit are gorgeous! I decided to focus on just one of the flowers and watercolor it white.

After stamping the flower, stem, and two leaves onto watercolor paper in waterproof black ink, I started painting the flower using two light shades of Distress Ink: Shaded Lilac and Pumice Stone. By keeping the shading very light, and most of the petals remaining white, this makes the flower look both white in color and with a bit of dimension.

To finished off the coloring, I used Mustard Seed for the center of the flower, and Crushed Olive, and Forest Moss for the stem and leaves.

I loved the idea of a white flower in front of a very colorful background, so I used a sheet of the patterned paper included in the kit. I cut it out with the A2 Layers dies from Waffle Flower and then cut off the bottom at an angle and adhered it to a white cardbase.

I adhered the watercolored flower and leaves to the card, and then added a stamped greeting from the stamp set.

Thanks for stopping by today! You can pick up the September 2019 Card Kit HERE, or subscribe to receive future kits HERE.

  1. The different colors in the background is a great idea. I have only used yellow for the sun’s rays. Thanks.

  2. Beautiful card! I love the ideas using patterned paper. I have a lot in my stash and need to use it more :) The added little dash of black on the card adds a neat touch. I appreciate your painting with Distress Ink as I have a number of those pads and do not have a good watercolor set so it is nice to be reminded I can use those!

  3. Simple and fun card to create with patterned paper, Distress Inks (still a favorite of mine), a beautiful floral design and the end result is beautiful!

  4. I never would have believed that the blue and grey would look so “white”! This was a helpful video!!

  5. I love your card, simple but elegant. I’ve made some of those sunburst cards but had to cut out all the pieces by hand. Nice that there is card stock that already does it for you. Thank you.

  6. Beautiful card! I love the way you shaded the flower with Distress ink and it still looks so white!

  7. Kristina, I love your love of color!!! This is stunning with the white flower in front of the brilliant bg!!

  8. Gorgeous card Kristina. By putting the beautiful shades flower on top of the coloured paper the flower looks even more white. Thank you so much for showing and have a great weekend.

  9. I would not have thought to use shaded lilac and pumice stone for a white flower, but it turned out beautifully! Wonderful card!

  10. Thank you for sharing your design! It is very pretty and the simplicity really makes the flower shine!

  11. This is a beautiful card…like the “shading” colors to create the white flower. It stands out so well against the rainbow of colors in this kit. tfs

  12. Love this card, Kristina! The simplicity of the beautiful white flower against the vivid background is wonderful!

  13. That big white gorgeous flower certainly makes an impression against that background and love the design. So pretty!

  14. This is such a gorgeous floral set and I always learn something when I watch Kristina paint. She has done an amazing job showcasing this set!
