I used Altenew's Golden Garden set for the flowers, and Adore You and Painted Butterflies for the sentiment.
I started with a watercolor paper panel, and created a background with water and Tombow markers. I rubbed the markers onto a piece of acetate, wet the paper, then used a paintbrush to add color to the panel. When it was dry, I used my Tombow markers to 'ink' up the flower stamp, and stamped it three times. I used a paintbrush and painted the flowers with more marker color rubbed onto the acetate. I added some final touches to the flowers with colored pencils. I used my brush to paint stems and leaves. For the centers of the flowers, I used FineTec gold paints. I also spattered some of the gold, and the same Tombow colors onto the panel.
I cut the 'you' from one of the phrases in my Adore You set and embossed it in gold. I also cut 'inspire me' from a phrase in my Painted Butterflies set, and stamp and embossed that in gold.
For the panel along the left edge, I painted some of the same colors on a strip of watercolor paper, and added that along the edge, then mounted my panel to an A2 card. I added some gold cording along the edge, and some sparkling crystals from Studio Katia.
I am adding my card to these challenges:
Altenew - Inspiration challenge
Little Red Wagon - Favorite product (sparkling crystals)
Make My Monday Challenge - Monochromatic
Simon Says Wednesday Challenge - Splatter it
