Muse Challenge #136 - Watercolored

I'm the muse this week for the Muse Card Challenge!  I hope you'll be inspired to make something pretty and enter the challenge. 

This card was quite easy.
  • Watercolored the panel, using as little water as I could.  Too much water and it results in hard line edges, which I did not want on this card.  
  • Waited for panel to dry. 
  • Covered flower and stem with markers, spritzed very lightly with water, and stamped and held image to panel
  • Let panel dry and covered with embossing buddy.
  • Stamped sentiment with Versmark and embossed in white.
  • Tied embroidery floss and adhered to kraft card.
  • Added white dots in center with gel pen.
  • Hero Arts watercolor flower set (this is an old set and I do not know the name)  Libby Hickson let me know it is CL 431 Watercolored Petals. Thanks!
  • Stampin Up Watercolored Words 
  • Veramark ink
  • White embossing powder
  • Heat Gun
  • Watercolor paper, water, paper towel, paint brush
  • Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolor paints 
  • Tombow markers 
  • Kraft cardstock
  • Dark blue embroidery floss
  • White gel pen
As my husband would say, so get yourself in your craft zone and go create!
