Watercolor Image Card

I wanted to try my hand at watercoloring (i use watercolor pencils) so i stamped this cute image on this nestability die cut, and embossed the edge too, using watercolor paper. I then took scrap paper and rubbed the color pencil colors i was going to use in the image onto the scrap paper so that i could wet my paint brush and then go in and wet the color i was going to use and then color on the image. It worked really well. I decided to make the back ground a bit grey , some blue, making it look like a cloudy rainy day. I added the image to matching papers, and machine stitched the blocks of color and the image to the background. I added a few dew drops and i made these paper roses out of the background paper to bring it all together. Adding a rub on sentiment. I LOVE this card! to cute, its got shiney paper, sparkle and charm!

Love your tin, Renee! Much cuter than the ones they sell these days. The domestic goddess paper is perfect too, great idea!
