Anthuriums and Free Anthurium Digi

Aloha friends,

It's been a while because of health junk but today was a better day. For the longest time I've been wanting to try and just sketch images rather than searching for ones I would like and then buy them. I could not figure out how to use the Wacoam Bamboo sketch tablet so gave up and used a pencil and Pigma Micron 3.0 pen lol!!! Then I scanned it and it's for free to anyone who would like it. As I strike out further, I will try and upload more free images as long as the getting old part doesn't tamp me too far down. ---Right click over the image, then click on "Save Image As" and select a folder in your computer to store it. You can resize it in a "Paint" or Word program, even copy it four times on a single sheet of cardstock as you print. Enjoy!!!

Oh, and I watched one of the YouTube artists draw and picked up some great hints from his tutorial. Here is a link to watch Alphonso:

I left some lines lighter or blank to help your coloring or painting to look more realistic, like light is hitting those areas. Plus our eyes tend to fill in those details, too. I hope you have fun with this should you want free digis. And this is how I watercolored it:

Anthuriums drawn with pencil and Pigma Micro 3.0 mm black pen
Gasai Tambi watercolors
Prismacolor pencils
GKD white Cardstock; SU Rich Razzleberry; Gold mirror cardstock; Neenah Solar White (inside) 
XCut Embossing Folder "Foliage"
SSS mini gold sequins
I added a score line around the image

Mahalo for stopping by!
Wishing you a healthy & joyous week ahead ♥ Aloha!


  1. OMGoodness! You are a major card making AND did I not know this?!?! Beautiful plant, beautiful card, beautiful drawing...need I say more? YOWZA!!!

  2. Wow, your image is really pretty! And I love the great results of your watercoloring on regular cardstock! Great work!
    And thank you for sharing your artwork for free! I don't use digis that often, but I did take the opportunity to save this image and hope to use it soon!

  3. Girl, you are amazing! So generous of you to share the digi image too. Your watercoloring is magnificent as well. I am not a digi person either but I think this one might be one I should keep and save.

  4. Gorgeous! I had no idea you drew this. Those drawing tablets can be picky. My daughter has a Wacom and uses it with Paint mostly, but is branching out to Adobe. Keep trying and keep drawing. A pencil works wonders in the right fingers.

  5. Oh my gosh, I had no idea you could draw. I'm so envious......opens a whole new world when you can draw what you vision in your head. And your card is absolutely stunning, I LOVE the colors here. Thanks so much for the free digi, I will cherish it for sure!!!!

  6. Rosy, this is amazing! What a terrific sketch!! I love how you've watercoloured it, too. I'll bet it looks even more shiny and richly coloured in real life, especially with that mirrored cardstock. What a talent you have!

  7. WOW!!! you are one talented lady, aren't you!?!?! Your sketch is amazing and the card is absolutely gorgeous.

  8. Wow is right! This is a gorgeous digital image that you drew! And what a stunning card you've made with it. Your colors and coloring are amazing, and I love the embossed gold and the rich matting! Stunning! Hugs! (P. S. I saw this card on SCS and just had to visit your blog!)

  9. Sorry Rosy. Beautiful
    Just saw this on Stamp TV site, browsing. Was off the system for a while and must have been then.
    You are so talented. Am going to certainly colour this one and thank you so much for sharing it.


Your kind comments really encourage me a TON! Mahalo nui loa!
