Technique: Watercolor Flowers
1. Using cream or white paper flowers (Petaloo), swipe Tombow markers over each flower. (Use water-based markers, NOT Copics!) I used pink and red on the large flower, orange and yellow on the medium flower, and blue and green on the small.
2. Lightly mist each flower with water to cause the colors to run.
3. While the flowers are still damp, crumple them, then gently unfold them and allow them to air-dry.
4. Once dry, swipe the flowers with Distress Ink to "age" them, then use Tombow liquid glue (mono or metal) to attach them to your card.
I found some hot orange ribbon to use, which just POPS off that teal paper! I gotta say, I have loved Graphic45 since I first saw it, but being on the DT and "having" to use it.....pure bliss!
