Watercoloured Florals!

Oh Hello everyone, I have a floral card to share with your today. My Sunday is cold, windy with hailstorms. The best thing to do was to watercolour a beautiful image. I love another of the new cling background stamp called Sweet Perfume. It is a beautiful cluster of flowers and leaves. Perfect image to watercolour. Here is the background cling stamp called Sweet Perfume from Penny Black.

I white heat embossed this image on watercoloured paper and coloured the image with Zig clean Brush watercolour pens.

At first, I laid a very light colour wash on the all of the images. While the paper is damp, I added shading with the darker shades of colour and blended the colour using aqua brush. It took me about an hour and half to finish watercolour with breaks in between. I then coloured the background with blue. Here are some closeups.

I then trimmed the panel to 4"x5". I added the black and white stripped pattern paper from Beau Jardins paper pack also from Penny Black on the bottom of the card base. I then added a strip of black cardstock on the bottom of the floral panel and adhered the panel on the card front using foam adhesive. The sentiment from Happy Notes stamp set is white heat embossed on black cardstock and adhered on the card front. Embellished with rose gold sequins.
