Flower Watercolor Card Set

I  made the first card for the Moxie Fab Wonder of Watercolor Challenge. I had so much fun with this
stamp and Tim's Distress markers that I decided to make a card set for my sister.

I'm also entering this card set into the Simon Says Vintage Challenge: Background.


Everything Flowers stamp from Hero Arts
Pink Lemonade Lawn Trimmings from Lawn Fawn
Sunshine Cards from Hero Arts
White watercolor paper from Hero Arts
French General Embellishments from eksuccess
Manganese Blue Archival Ink from Ranger
Magenta Hue Archival Ink from Ranger
Tumbled Glass, Broken China, Mustard Seed,
Spiced Marmalade and Antique Linen Distress
Markers from Tim Holtz

Stamp the watercolor panels with the
Everything Flower Stamp using the
Magenta Hue and Manganese Blue
Archival Inks.

Color in the open flowers the distress

Color  in the open space between flowers
with the Antique Linen Distress marker.

Edge the watercolor panel with the
gold paint dabber.

Tie the Pink Lemonade trim around
the panel.

Attach the panel to the card.
