Hawthorne & Roses Watercolor Bouquet

Hello everyone!  Heidi, here today and I have a card with a beautiful watercolor bouquet of flowers to share with you.

I stamped the Hawthorne & Roses image using Jet Black StazOn ink on to Strathmore Mixed Media paper.  Then I used Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolor paints to color the image.

Here is a close up of the image.  After I was done watercoloring the image then I did a watercolor wash using a couple colors of blue for the background.  To finish off the watercolor I used the black paint on my brush with a little water to create the tiny paint splatters.  Then I used Spellbinders Labels Forty-One to die cut the image.  I also created another die cut to layer in the background using Labels Thirty-Five.  

I embossed the white background piece using a doilies embossing folder from We R Memory Keepers.  To finish off the card I added a hand dyed seam binding bow and a couple of acrylic leaves and a pink rose for embellishments.

Thanks so much for joining me today!
