A Bouquet of Good Wishes

"Percolating" colorful flowers with coffee filters.

A Bouquet of Good Wishes

These were inspired by the large peony and hydrangea blooms that I have seen this summer.

Several groupings of coffee filters were scrunched together to make small flowers.  After coloring, the groupings were then assembled together for the larger bloom.


This orange and pink flower was colored with a combination of Dr. Ph. Martin's Hydrus Watercolors and Ranger Distress Paints.


And this blue flower was painted with just the Dr. Ph. Martin's Hydrus Watercolors.

The wired stems were wrapped with twill tape colored with diluted Ranger Distress Paints.  

Tags die-cut from white cardstock using Penny Black's Tagged Creative Dies were first masked in the center with Eclipse Tape.  The flourish was stamped with VersaMark Watermark ink and then covered with an application of Phthalo Blue Tint and  Orange PanPastels.  After the mask was removed, the sentiment was stamped in Onyx Black VersaFine.

Colorful sheer ribbons with antique crystal buttons were attached for adornment.

Thank you for visiting.  Wishing you everlasting color....
