Lotus Bouquet Card - Mandy Herring

Hello there
Thanks for popping in to see my latest card for Paper Rose Studio.
Today's card features the lovely Lotus Bouquet stamp and a lot of colouring.
I have stamped out in a very light coloured ink so that my pencil lines are not visible, and coloured 
in with Polychromos and Holbein pencils. 
The Holbein Artist pencils range has a lot more pastel tones in their range and their soft pinks and yellows were perfect for this project.
I used a few shades of yellow for the centre of the petals 
and blended out to a medium pink tone.
Lotus flowers can also have some lines in their petals 
so I added these with a darker magenta pink
The background has been done using Daniel Smith Watercolours in Duo Chrome Turquoise, Sleeping Beauty Turquoise and Ultramarine Turquoise.
I have cut out white card using the' hello' from the Hugs, Thanks and Hello Chunky Word die set 
and the sentiment is from the Big Black and White A5 paper pack.
