I love how those flowers look then they are watercolored without an outline. I used ordinary Watercolor Brush Markers and Bristol Smooth Cardstock. First, I placed the cardstock and the stamp to the Stamp Platform. I colored the stamp (one section at a time) with markers and stamped the image to the cardstock. I repeated it until it was all stamped. Then I took a small paintbrush and a bit of water and colored it all in. It wasn't necessary to add any more color, it transferred from the lines very well. After the coloring was done, I let it dry and then placed it back to the Stamp Platform. I re-stamped the image with the same markers to get the details back. Deeper shadows were painted with markers.
The sentiment is from Vintage Peony Inspiration Stamp set. I stamped it with Nuvo Clear Mark Embossing Ink and heat embossed with Sea Foam Embossing Powder. Actually, it wasn't important which color EP I used because I covered it later with Razzle Dazzle Glitter and used the heat tool from underneath to melt the glitter into the embossed sentiment. Rest of the loose glitter was brushed off.
For the background, I adhered 2 1/2" Double Sided Tear-ific Tape to the cardstock. With the help of the x-acto knife and a ruler, I cut the protective layer to diagonal stripes, alternating 0,5 cm and 1 cm strips. I peeled off the protective layer from all half cm strips and covered the tape with Razzle Dazzle Glitter. One cm strips were covered with Fantasy Gold Glitter.
To embellish my card, I sprinkled some Happiness Super Thick Embossing Powder to the background and melt the powder from underneath the cardstock with the Heat Tool. I also added a few strips of lace to decorate my card.
