Today at our Double D challenge we have a fun theme and it is 
Look at the gorgeous mood board for inspiration!

I did a pretty easy card for this challenge...
easy because I already had it water colored lol!

I used the Manhattan embossing folder from SU
(at least I think that is the name of it ).

It was embossed on watercolor paper 
then using Versamark ink and a brayer, 
lightly go over the embossed roses
and quickly use embossing powder,
I used white for mine, or use clear.

Then I simply used some TH distress inks and a water brush
and preceded to water color it in.

I stamped a sentiment from 
SU's Southern Serenade stamp set.

Next I mixed up a bit of water downed glue
and using a water brush I spattered it on.
SNS Cloud Nine glitter was then sprinkled on the glue.

It gave it just the right amount of sparkle!

I hope you will take the time to see all the gorgeous
watercolor creations from the Double D Design Team
as they are GORGEOUS!!

I love this! It is so beautiful and I love the idea of using the embossing folder and brayering on the Versamark and then the embossing powder. Double embossing I guess. I never ever thought to do that.

This is soooo gorgeous, Diane! I LOVE what you did with that embossing folder! I've never seen it look so pretty. Now you've got me wondering what folders I have that I might do watercoloring on. Love the soft blue and the splatters. A beautiful card, for sure!
