Here is my card for the inspiration.

I used the Rose 2 rubber stamp for this card. Roses I feel are the hardest to color because they are the most common flowers and people can usually notice if you have messed up any part of it. I am a newbie at watercoloring, so please pardon my errors. I stamped the image on a piece of Arches Hot Pressed watercolor paper using Antique Linen Distress Ink and did some no line watercoloring using my collection of Daniel Smith watercolors.

I stamped the sentiment from Sketched Flowers stamp set using clear embossing ink and gold heat embossed it.

After I was done coloring, I trimmed the panel to be around 4 inches by 5.5 inches and placed it on a piece of A2 sized top folding card base made from kraft cardstock. I finished the card off with some iridescent sequins.

So now it’s YOUR turn. Happy Crafting!
