Watercolor Lily


I have never seen a Brownish Lily, but I say "why not?" The Create Something Catchy Challenge is looking for watercolor cards, and I am thinking there might not be anything "catchier" than a brown flower.

It happened to work for the inspiration photo from Altenew:

Lots of gorgeous browns, golds and woodgrain!

The Lily was inked, misted and stamped onto watercolor paper. Though you can't see the shimmer in the picture, I used Delicata Golden Glitz as my "paint" around the flower.
Left edge was stamped and inked also.
Woodgrain pattern paper and the oh so lovely Doily fabric ribbon was added.

It might not be realistic, but I like it!
