View Full Version : 1 on 1: Realistic Flowers

03-31-2008, 01:01 AM
After a rough beginning of year at work things are finally settling down enough to allow me more time in trading, and I thought it'd be a perfect time to add to my flower collection.
So...here's the deal, I'd love to receive realistic flower cards; you tell me what flower(s) you'd like to make and I'll do the same in return for you. Since I'll be making all of my cards hand drawn and painted I'd prefer to receive cards in this style as well (some collage it's ok as long as the principal element continues to be hand drawn). I definitely don't want to end up having to draw 15 rose cards or 15 tulip cards, so I'd like to get different flowers from different members; I'll keep a list in the first post with the flowers that have already been called for. I'll be willing to trade up to 3 cards per artist to take advantage of the posting cost as much as possible, but if you only want to trade one card it's perfectly fine.
Let's trade :wubclub:
Trading List
*Cazfun -- Frangipani Flower
*Lilbad -- Sunflower / Stargazer

Received the Jetti Giraff and the lovely sunflower. So much fun. You did a great job on both. Great ideaS!!

04-25-2008, 03:14 PM
I don't know how the name of these flowers, but they are available if you don't have anything like them.

04-25-2008, 04:51 PM
Elena, those look like hibiscus.

04-25-2008, 04:59 PM
Love your gerber daisy and your sunflower (my fav. flower). Most of my tole cards are fantasy flowers, so I'll have to see which realistic one I can do and want back.

04-25-2008, 06:30 PM
I just added Xstitcher who is doing a violet, gladiola, and carnation for me. Elena I love those hibiscus! I'll pm you.

04-26-2008, 05:05 PM
I'd love to trade my pansy and pink wood sorrel cards with you. If you can't find a pink wood sorrel that's OK, just surprise me with a new type of flower!

04-26-2008, 05:09 PM
I'll pm you

04-26-2008, 05:20 PM
This week I got Lemay's Daisy Gerbera and Lilbad's Stargazer and Sunflower. I thought I'd add them here to have some eye candy on the thread. Thanks for the trade ladies!

I know, and Lemay's Daisy Gerbera has the most extraordinary detail, there's shading in all the petals not matter how small!

04-27-2008, 12:24 AM
I'm working on a rose right now if you would like it. I am collecting state/province/country flowers. Would you mind making me the flower of Guatemala?

04-27-2008, 07:17 AM
I am not sure you are asking me , but I can make you a "Monja Blanca". Do you have a rose already? I can make you one also.

04-27-2008, 03:10 PM
I'd love a rose Jitterbug, and I'll gladly do my country flower for you. Elena already mentioned it, it's called "Monja Blanca" which means "White Nun" and it's a type of rare orchid. Here's a pic.

Elena, I'd love to trade for your hibiscus and will do one back for you -or do you have something else on mind?

04-27-2008, 03:58 PM
jklee, an hibicus would be perfect, thanks :jiggy:
Sorry for the confusion. On my previous post I though it was you instead of Jitterbug who was asking for the Guatemala flower:err:

04-27-2008, 05:43 PM
That's great Elena.

I will put the trading on this thread on hold for a while, I want to get Elena's, Jitterbug's, Xstitcher's and other cards I owe out of the way before getting into more trades.

04-28-2008, 08:47 PM
Certainly is a pretty little thread you have going on here. :)

04-28-2008, 08:51 PM
It is, I'm hoping to get more trades going by the end of next week. I'll keep you posted!

05-03-2008, 01:06 AM
Ok, it seems I was able to get ahead of some of my most pressing commitments - it was a holiday yesterday and I took advantage of it!. I finished the hibiscus for Elena and my national flower for Jitterbug.

This is my country's national flower for Jitterbug. The background is done with acrylics and the orchid itself is done with prisma color pencils.

I'm ready for more trades!

10-08-2008, 02:26 PM
If you know what a wild rose is (has 5 petals) I could paint one for you if you like.

10-08-2008, 08:41 PM
I just PMed you Kelly, I'll have to put this on hold until next year. I'm overworked at the moment.

10-09-2008, 09:22 AM
No problem. Thanks
