Hello for Just Us Girls - Fast Watercolors

Hello friends.  I am sharing a card I made for JUGS #453 - Fast Watercolors.
I watched Jennifer McGuire's YouTube video linked to at JUGS and then tried it for my card.  Mine is not as good as Jennifer's or the JUGS designers, but it is a fun technique to try.  I will have to try it again.
For my card I stamped flowers and leaves from Altenew Perfectly Perfect on watercolor paper and embossed them with clear embossing powder.  I smeared Spiced Marmalade Distress Oxide ink on part of the flower and Twisted Citron on the leaves and then sprayed lots of water on them.  I set them aside to dry and assembled my base card with a black mat and orange dotted paper from a Recollections pad, it matched the flower pretty close.  The white circle is die cut with PTI Shape Shifters - Circle 1 die.  I laid it upside down, replaced all the cut out pieces and covered it with foam tape to mount it to my card base.  After the flower was dry, I die cut them with the matching dies and mounted with foam tape.  The leaves are just glued down under the edge of the flower.  I die cut the Tutti Designs Hello die 3 times and layered them together for dimension.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  I hope you have a wonderful day.

Happy Stamping,
