Watercolour on Diecuts-floral card

Hello dear friends

Happy Friday to all !!!
Spring is in full bloom and flowers are spreading their beauty all over. It's Anita once again, sharing with you the beauty of spring flowers.

Many times we are all short of time and also some people are not fond of making 3D flowers . They want quick beautiful cards .
So here is a cool technique where colouring die cuts with water colour can really make them look beautiful and layering them together gives a lovely floral card like this.

To make this card,
Cut all the die cuts with white card stock and emboss a card panel 6" x 4"

Using distress inks , colour all the die cuts. Use the negative of the wild flower to create subtle stamping on the oval label. Distress ink names are mentioned below.

Layer the ovals like this and adhere on the embossed panel as shown.

Adhere all the die cuts layering them together like this.
Add a sentiment.

Adhere the card panel on card base measuring 7" x 5".

CottageCutz products used.

Wildflowers 2

Springtime Bluebell flowers

Cross-stitched Oval set

Distress inks used -- Peeled Paint, Mowed Lawn, Chipped Sapphire, Candied Apple, Fossilised Amber, Carved Pumpkin
I hope you will try this technique. Do share your work. I hope you have a good crafty weekend.
