Water Colored Asters

Happy Sunday Morning!
This is my card today on the Sparkle N Sprinkle blog  using the fabulous new stamp set
Aster Garden.

For this card I decided to do a little water coloring on water color paper
and a bit of masking.
I first die cut a panel from  Sue Wilson Frames & Tags Hannah
I stamped my first image from the   Aster Garden stamp set on the water color paper
then stamped again on a piece of scrap paper, then cut it out to use as a mask.
All images were stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.

I placed the mask over the first stamped image, then proceeded to stamp the next two images, 
moving the mask as needed for each flower. 

Then came the fun part, water coloring with Aqua Flow water color pens
Summer Holiday,  Winter Skies, and  Spring Meadow for the flowers.
An Aqua Flow Water Brush was used to apply all the colors.
I applied a bit of Sakura Glue Pen to each yellow part of the flowers,
then sprinkled with  Daisy pretty!

The flower panel was then adhered on a piece of pink gingham paper
using Tear-ific Tape ½”.
Butterflies were die cut using Precious Marieke Butterflies,
then coated with Nuvo Glue Pen Large and glittered with Orchid glitter.

The sentiment was stamped with Versamark ink and
embossed with Berry Bliss embossing powder on a die cut using Find It Trading Floral Labels
and adhered down with Tear-ific Tape ¼ .
The finishing touch was adding small pretty 'dots' using Glitter Drops Pink Champagne.

Thanks for taking a look today and be sure to leave a comment both here and on my post on the SNS Blog for a chance to go shopping at Sparkle N Sprinkle.  No one knows who the Mystery Designer is this month (and it might just be me).  There will be new projects on the SNS Blog every day for your inspiration and for increasing your chances of winning.  Good luck!

Wow! Your watercoloring looks fantastic! I really love the loose look which I'm not very good at. These asters are nice and open and perfect for it. Really like the Floral Labels die, too. Lots of fun to look at here today!
