Swirly Scribbles Watercolor Card

This watercolor background is very fun to do -- it's still a work in progress, I think, but I thought I'd share anyway.  I used Watercolor Paper and my Aqua Painter with a variety of ink colors; Tempting Turquoise, Peek-a-boo Peach, Flirty Flamingo and Rose Red (at least I think those are the colors!).

After water coloring the background I used the Swirly Scribbles Thinlit to cut the swirl.  I kept all the little pieces

Add some Whisper White flowers cut from Botanical Builder Framelits and the "hello" from Hello You Thinlits cut from Tip Top Taupe Card Stock.  Painted on some Clear Wink of Stella 'cause who doesn't love a touch of glimmer.

I cut several more of the swirl and glued them together one on top of the other with "green glue" aka Tombow Multipurpose Adhesive, gluing the watercolor paper swirl on the top.  That layered piece was glued back onto the card and the bits and pieces added.  Some Pearl Basic Jewels finish it off.  Card base is Tip Top Taupe.

Thank you for looking!

    1. I probably used Daffodil Delight, it seems a bit to bright for So Saffron. Have fun! I'm glad you love the card and for commenting!
