Watercolored Petals (Video)

Hi ya friends,
I'm back today to earn badge number 3 for Camp Create at My Favorite Things!
The task:
Here's my card:
 I used a super easy-peasy watercoloring technique to watercolor the flowers and leaves. I won't go into the deets because you can see that process in the video. I die cut the flowers using the Plentiful Petals dienamics (MFT) and the Royal Leaves dienamics (MFT) from Ranger water color paper. I used Distress Inks in Worn Lipstick, Picked Raspberry, and Wilted Violet to give them a color wash and then added depth with another more concentrated application in the centers of the petals.

Here's a closer peek at the dimension:
The sentiment (Sentimental-Avery Elle) was heat embossed in Liquid Platinum embossing powder (Ranger). Last, I added a bit of clear Wink of Stella glitter pen to the petals.

And the innie:
I stamped the inside sentiment (Simply Fab Sayings-MFT) and heat embossed it in Liquid Platinum again. I added two little leftover leaves and ink splatters to match the front of the card.

I invite you to watch the video below or on my You Tube channel ---> HERE.

Thanks so much for watching and stopping by my blog today!
I'm off to work on badge number 4!
