Helping Me Grow in Watermelon Wonder

While trying to figure out a card for a card swap that I was in I "watercolored" this card and decided I was going to send it to my aunt for her birthday.  I love the bright color of the flowers and the pale blue in the background.

Definitely an easy card to make!  I stamped the images with VersaMark on watercolor paper and embossed them with white embossing powder.  To get the different shades of color I did one petal at a time.  I'd get the whole petal wet using an aqua painter (or paintbrush if you prefer), then I'd add the color on the bottom of the petal and let it bleed upward.  

I did the same with the "Happy Birthday".  I stamped everything with VersaMark and embossed it in white, then cut it out with the Rose Garden Thinlits.  Then I wet the whole inside and put my color in with an aqua painter using Soft Sky.

Thanks for looking and have a great day!
