Sketched Flowers

Today's card features one of my favourite stamps...'Sketched Flowers' by Simon Says Stamp. I partially stamped it along the top and bottom edges of a piece of watercolour paper using Versamark Ink, then heat embossed it using gold metallic embossing powder from WOW. I then watercoloured the images lots of Distress Inks (Victorian Velvet, Seedless Preserves, Fired Brick, Dusty Concord, Chipped Sapphire, Shaded Lilac, Forest Moss, Crushed Olive, Peeled Paint, Pine Needles & Lucky Clover). I made the sentiment using several of the stamps from the 'Go To Words' set by Visible Images, heat embossing each section as I went with more of the metallic gold. I matted the watercoloured panel on to some gold mirror card before adding it to the card blank.
