There are many beautiful cards around with painted flowers, embossed outlines and watercolor backgrounds.
Inspired by all those creations I tried my own version.
I used a flower stamp set from Dee's Artsy Impressions at Stamploration.
I stamp the flowers on watercolor paper with versamark and heat embossed it with gold embossing powder from Wow. Then I colored in the leaves using my waterbrush and distress markers from Tim Holtz.

I added a sentiment and placed the watercolor paper on purple cardstock.
I just love this color combination of purple/gold/green.
Maybe next time I will also watercolor the background around the flowers to give the card more depth.

I'm entering this card in these challenges:

Thank you for stopping by my blog. Until next time.

Hugs, Henriette.
