watercolor thanks...

Hey friends!!  Popping in with a card that I made for several challenges, Essentials by Ellen Pin-sights, Sweet Sunday Sketch and Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge (thank you). The inspiration board for the current Essentials by Ellen pin-sights challenge is full of beautiful floral images.  Good thing I do own one Essentials by Ellen floral set!   I tried my hand at some more water coloring and I have to say that I'm really happy with how things turned out.  I stamped the smaller scribble flower and leaf on some Ranger water color paper using VersaMark watermark ink, applied white embossing powder and heat set.  I then colored the flowers with two shades of light pink and the leaves with a light green ink.   The panel was then die cut using my Lawn Fawn speech bubble border die.    The larger scribble flower and leaves received the same treatment and once finished were die cut with the corresponding dies.   A plain white panel was trimmed down and the word "thanks" (from the Essentials by Ellen Fancy Thanks set) stamped in black ink.  I attached the water colored piece and then adhered it to a neutral card base. 

 
 
Thanks for stopping by and for your lovely comments...
