A watercolor card

Today I started off making a flip-it card, and somehow got distracted looking for paper to match and ended up making a watercolor card instead. 
I used Elizabeth Craft Design's flower sticker and glitter and Hero Arts watercolor paper. Love this glitter because it doesn't flake off. I wanted to try these pens that I sell from Tombow called dual brush pens. They really are that good for watercoloring! I used Tim Holtz water brushes to blend the different color shades.
This is the first time I made a watercolor card. I was so impressed on how much water I used and the paper never warped. And the ECD glitter is amazing for watercolors. I know it's a little hard to see the glitter on my card but if you click on the picture, it should make the image bigger so you can see it.
Think I'll try some different methods of watercoloring during the Memorial Day weekend.
Have a great day!!!

Ohhhh, so pretty Cheryl. LOVE the sweet colors and the honeycomb embossing sure makes a nice background. Have a great LONG weekend.

Can't believe you haven't been doing this technique for years. Your card looks very professional. The colors are very well blended and the glitter looks fabulous. I am going to look for the supplies you mentioned. Have a crafty weekend!
