For my cards today, I made several water color wash backgrounds. I picked one of the brighter ones for this card. The frame was die cut first, edged w/ a black marker,  then the tulips & leaves were cut out of the leftover pieces.  A white background was cut to fit inside the frame using a pierced rectangle die then the flowers were arranged on top. The Bloom die was cut out of black 3 times and stacked together. I added just the flower centers cut out of a little pink area from the watercolor background. The finished card is 4.25 x 5.50 and here’s a look at the inside.

My second card uses one of the paler water color backgrounds. This time, I die cut a narrow black square frame to place all the flowers & leaves inside. Before I attached them, I used a black Tombow maker to ink just a few of the dots from the ink splatter image and stamped them in a diagonal from top left to bottom right.

After attaching all the flowers, the Create word was die cut 3 times like before and stacked. I added some black crystals to the flower centers for a little sparkle. The finished card is 4.25 x 5.50 and here’s a look at the inside.
