I painted the watercolor background for this card at the beginning of last week...and I'm sharing it with you on Sunday because I couldn't quite get this card finished all week long.
I was inspired to make the watercolor panel by the Muse Card Club challenge. Although I loved that soft blue background in the inspiration card, I knew I wanted my first March SOTM teacup card to be in pink. I embossed the flower images all over the background in clear embossing powder over Colonial White cardstock. Then I painted on pink using watercolor pencils and a waterbrush.
After the paint was dry I burnished the embossing with a tissue to bring the clear/white lines back up. I stamped the teacup at the bottom in Blush ink and overstamped that with the sentiment in black. I finished off the card with a bit of Sugar Rush paper, pink organdy ribbon, and a few sparkly gems. With my house full of boys, sometimes it nice to make something so unabashedly girlie!
