I don't oftern use watercolour paper for my watercolour projects. Why I'm not to sure but for whatever reason I did reach for it for today's card! I am using the gorgeous Sending Smiles bundle all week and had no idea how to incorporate watercolour in my inspiration. So I started with a simple watercolour wash in pale blue.
I used the flatter side of the watercolour paper because I suddenly had an idea to use some of the fab sentiments in the stamp set as the stems for flowers.
The stamp set is a photopolymer so manipulating the stamps to create curves was easy! Once the background was perfectly dry I used an anti static bag before stamping the sentiments in versamark. I then heat embossed them with black powder.
Putting that piece to one side I went to work on the flowers. I created a watercolour background using pink, yellow and lilac ink.
Next I decided to heat emboss the flowers in clear embossing powder so the colour show through. I then die cut several.
The all that was left was to pop the card together add a few iridescent rhinestones for a little extra sparkle.
