Watercolored Flower Fancy!

Hi everyone! Today is a much less-hectic day for me! Yesterday I was meeting my dad for lunch and I didn't have time to really go into detail on my card. If you have any questions about yesterday's card, please let me know and I will be glad to supply you with information!

Today's card is for several challenges....
#1 My Favorite Things Sketch found on Cindy's Blog!

#2 Color Throwdown to use Regal Rose, Always Artichoke, and Chocolate Chip!

#3 365 Cards challenge to use a label!

I had found a card on Splitcoast Stampers that used the Flower Fancy set.... a set that sometimes I have a hard time knowing what to do with. I knew when I saw her card that I wanted to give Flower Fancy another shot! You can see the card I used as my inspiration here!

I'm not going to lie, this card took a long time to make... probably an hour or so. I do feel like it was worth it and I had fun making it!

I stamped my images, then watercolored them with Stampin' Write Markers and an Aqua Painter. This is my favorite method when watercoloring because it's easy to shade. After I watercolored, I cut out my images... this is what took so long!!

I mounted all of the flower images on dimensionals and then glued the leaves down with mono adhesive.

The rest is pretty self explanatory!
