Purple and Gold…

Hi! Michele here with a tutorial on how I created my card today. I have been loving my water colors so much, that lately that seems to be the medium I turn to most! With the addition of a few of my favorite adhesives, a bit of glitter, texture paste, and flowers, I have a card all ready for spring!Purple Flowers by Michele Kovack

I had these flower stickers in my stash and wondered if I could color them.  (Because I have literally water colored everything in sight lately!) Well, the answer to that is a resounding YES!

I water colored a background and then cut my flowers in half.  Crazy I know! But this weirdo brain of mine had a plan! 😉

But first, I wanted to break up the purple a bit, so I pulled out a circle stencil and swiped some texture paste over it.

While the paste was still wet, I sprinkled some bronze glitter, wiped the edges a bit, and set it aside to dry.

Once dry, I wanted to adhere my cut flowers and create a trim for the bottom of my water colored/glittered panel using those 1/2 cut flowers.

I adhered them using my Dodz™

I tied various shades of purple ribbon and adhered those with my Dodz™ as well.

The water color panel was adhered to a piece of white card stock using my E-Z Squares®

Then that panel and an additional white panel were adhered to the white card stock using my Crafty Foam Tape.  I wanted the card to look a bit like framed artwork.

Here is one last look at my finished project.

I hope my card brought a bright spot to your day!  🙂
