Layering blossoms

Hello :) I love, love, love cards that have pretty watercolor on them but I never seem to be able to use watercolor correctly. I am going to keep trying though. This card is kind of a cheat on watercolor. First I masked off my water color cardstock so that only a strip in the middle was visible. I used Altenew's Bold Blossom set in shades of pinks and greens along the open area and then took a waterbrush before it completely dried to blur the lines a bit.

Once I took the masking off I used a wink of stella on the higlight parts of the flower to give it a little shimmer. The 'beautiful' is a die cut from C&9th's Beautiful You die and the little words are from the C&9th's Beautiful Words set. I used glossy accents on the die cut to add some dimension and then a few Nuvo drops too. I adhered the panel to a top folding card to finish it off.

 I am sharing this in:
