Hello Friend Card

Hello Friend!  I'm so glad you're here.

Today's card features no-line watercolor, and I made it for the Altenew October inspiration challenge.  
 Stamps are from the Altenew clear set Peony Bouquet.  

I used Tombow markers to stamp and watercolor the flowers in the no-line watercolor fashion.  There are several on-line tutorials on blogs and YouTube for how to do this.  HERE is one by Kristina Werner on her blog.  She uses watercolor paints on hers, but I did mine with Tombow markers.

The dies are from Spellbinders, and the embossing plate I used for the quilt background is by We Are Memory Keepers. 

I used distress ink with a Clarity stencil brush to create the soft shading inside the die around the flowers.
