Welcome Spring... Watercoloring

Hello!  I'm posting a for fun card today, yay!  I've created this lovely watercolor card based on several challenges including the Waffle Flower Challenge: watercoloring and Simon Says Stamp Work It Wednesday: Flowers, As You Like It Challenge: Favorite Embossing and why...

To create this card I started with Arches 140 Cold Press Watercolor paper.  I heat embossed my stamped images from the new Waffle Flower's release Welcome Spring Stamp Set.  I love using heat embossing when watercoloring as it keeps the color contained and thus easy to work with.  I then used my Gansai Tambi watercolors to drop in my colors.  Once the panel dried I stamped my sentiment and butterfly with Versafine ink.  I then used the Lacey Layers die also by Waffle Flower to diecut a layer at an angle, and I popped it up with foam adhesive.  To finish my card I used some sequins from Mint Owl Studio.

Thanks so much for stopping by and Happy Crafting!
