Thinking of You ...

 Hope you had a wonderful Sunday. It's natnatbot again with another card. I was browsing around instagram and saw so many beautiful watercolor floral cards that inspired me to make one too. This card I made features the Lotus stamp set from Waffle Flower and the Zig clean color real brush pens.
To create this card, I used Versamark ink to stamp out the images on watercolor paper. Then, I used white embossing powder and heat set it. I like using embossing powder when it comes to water coloring so that my colour stays within the lines. I used the Zig clean colour real brush pens in 21 Light Carmine, 51 Lemon Yellow and a water brush to colour in the lotus. For the stem, I used 48 Emerald Green and 49 Green Shadow. Then I outlined the flower with 302 Haze Blue. 
With Versamark ink again, I stamped the sentiment and the dragonfly images and also heat set it with embossing powder. Then with Zig 21 Light Carmine, I scribbled it on a acrylic block and put water on it so that I can flick little splatters on the panel. To finish it off, I cut a half inch strip of cardstock with gold foil and glued it on the left side of the panel. With double sided foam tape, I adhered the watercolour panel on the card. That completes this simple and delicate looking card.
