I haven't watercolored in quite a while, and when I saw  this beautiful set, I pulled out my Watercolor Brush markers and had lots of fun creating my card!

First I inked up the Paint-A-Flower: Gerbera Revolution with clear embossing ink and stamped it onto some watercolor paper.  Then I sprinkled on Rose Gold Crisp Embossing Powder and heat set it.

Next I used a few watercolor brush markers from the Tropical Fiesta Set and a watercolor brush to color the flowers and leaves.  I used Lemon, Turquoise, Desert Night, and Lime.  I also did a light wash of color around the flowers.  When the wash was dry, I added some spatters around the image using the same colors.  (Tip:  I didn't want spatters on the flowers so to mask it off, I just laid the stamp over the image!)

I adhered another piece of watercolor cardstock to my card base.  Then I added foam tape to the back of my colored panel to pop it up on the card.  I heat embossed the sentiment from the Paint-A-Flower: Gerbera Revolution with Rose Gold EP and added foam tape to the back.

Thank you so much for stopping by today.  Be sure to leave a comment here before hopping along to increase your chances to win one of the awesome prizes!

  10. What a beautiful answer cheerful card! I love that you used Ukraine's flag colors! (I wonder if that was on purpose?) I really like how your background colors are the same as the flowers...with both colors a bit muted. Really a lovely look! Love this gerbera daisies set...the sentiments are fantastic!
