I love the watercolor look especially backgrounds. I decided it was time to pull out some supplies to use to make a watercolor card. At first I was going to watercolor this flower bouquet but ended up using Copic markers on them.

I wanted some cheery colors to place on a yellow orange background. After I created the watercolor background I cut it with an oval doily die. I also die cut the sentiment. I popped the flower bouquet image up using 3-D foam tape and did the same for the oval doily. I didn't have buttons to match so I colored the cream button using a blue (B04) Copic marker and attached it to the blue green twine.

Stamps: Pink Cat Studio (flower bouquet)
Papers: SU (white, yellow)
Inks: SU (daffodil delights, pumpkin pie), Copic
Accessories: The Twinery (twine), SU (vintage buttons)
Tools: Penny Black (Hello Frame) MFT Stamps ( Oval Doily Die-namics)
