Spray of Flowers

I just had to create a card so I could use the Freshly Made sketch and the Colour Q combo so here's the result.  
 The sketch just called for a simple card so in order to get started I reached for a stamp set by Altenew and stamped two of the flowers.  I stamped then with white ink and embossed them with white embossing powder and simply added color with a couple Distress Stains using watercolor paper.  I love coloring that way. For the background I simply added three shades of Distress Stain to an acrylic block, gave that a spritz of water and then rubbed it onto my watercolor piece of paper.  Giving that another spritz of water gives a great watercolor look. 
 I did use two different flowers and added one of them with foam tape.  The thanks is a die cut from Clearly Besotted and I cut that from the light brown paper to match the Crumb Cake in the colors.  
 Here is the Freshly Made sketch.
Here is the Colour Q combo.
