Kylie's International Blog Highlights

Hello and welcome to my blog; my second post for today is part of Kylie's International Blog Highlights.  Please take a few minutes and vote for my card.  Speaking of which I created a little watercolor card.  I used the All That You Are stamp Set for my card.  Here's a little look at it.

I started out by stamping the largest flower twice on a piece of watercolor cardstock.  Next I stamped about five of the additional flowers from the stamp set.  Once I had everything stamped I started the watercoloring process.  Building up layer after layer until I had the desired hues and tones.  


After everything was dried I painted the background with a blue shade and set the card front to the side to dry.  While this was drying I used the Frosted Bouquet framelits and cut out the medium flowers.  Once everything was cut out I take a piece of vellum cardstock and heat embossed my sentiment on it using copper embossing powder.  I then added the card front to a piece of Flirty Flamingo Cardstock and attached it to a Thick Whisper White Card base after wrapping my vellum sentiment on the front.  At this point I could come back and attach the other flowers using stampin' dimensionals around the sentiment and other flowers.  To finish off the card I added a few Glitter Enamel dots.
