Balmy Sympathy

Here is a simple watercolor technique. The key to success is waiting for the panel to dry before stamping on it. Have you tried it? 

   Painted Poppies
   Flourishing Phrases

   Highland Heather A-2
   Watercolor 5-1/4 x 4
   Basic Black 5-3/8 x 4-1/8
   Basic White 5-1/4 x 4 (Inside)

   Tuxedo Black Memento

   Balmy Blue
   Highland Heather
   Pear Pizzazz

   Watercolor - Clear Block "E"

   Gingham Gala Sequins
   Water Spritzer (Mister)
   Clear Block E

First, I colored the Clear Block "E", using markers. I started with Balmy Blue on the top, followed by Highland Heather, and Pear Pizzazz at the bottom. I covered the entire block.

I then spritzed or misted the block with water.

I stamped the center of the watercolor panel. I let it sit for a bit to allow the color to soak into the panel.

Once it dried for a minute, I stamped the posies on the bottom.

Next, I stamped the sentiment on the top. I used a sentiment from the Flourishing Phrases stamp set.

I then adhered the watercolor panel on to a Basic Black matte, and then on to the Highland Heather card front.

Lastly, I added a few sequins and adhered the Basic White panel to the inside of the card.
