Messy Water Colouring...

Today's card.....
Inspired by...'All the Little Things' inspiration Photo.....
What inspired me was the gorgeous water colouring, the colours and the loose feel of it...
Here is my card.......
I wanted to attempt the card without heat embossing the stamped flowers, 
much like the inspiration photo looked like.
This technique and style is very new to me, which led to at least 5 attempts!
Water colouring is very challenging to me but messy/loose even more so!
I thought I had an understanding what inks worked together,
without bleeding but I shall just say I learnt a lot more on this card.

I used a couple of different stamp sets to achieve the look I was after.
After stamping, masking and water colouring I stamped the sentiment 
straight onto my card using the fabulous Misti.....
I framed the flowers with a linen card matting layer.
Learnt lots and fun along the way.
