Clean and simple

A really quick and simple card using "watercolour wonder crayons" with my free Sale-a-bration set "Sweet summer". I'm not much of a glittery girl but I love the look of the glittery flowers!
To create the background scribble your crayon lightly on watercolour paper and wash with an aqua painter. Blot with paper towel and dry using your heat tool.
Stamp stems and flowers in staz on and slightly colour your flowers, leaving white areas to blend and soften your colour (you can always add more colour after it dries if desired).
The glitter can be done in one of two ways. You can either use dimensional magic and then sprinkle with dazzling diamonds and tap off excess (easiest) OR colour with a versamarker, and heat n stick powder-heat (being careful not to over heat) and then add dazzling diamonds-then heat slightly. Which ever way you do it it will look beautiful :)

vintage floral

I just love how both of these turned out, particularly the first one and oh so easy!
I stamped the Inspired by Nature stamp in Pear Pizazz, wiping off the flowers and inking the tops with Peach Parfait. Then folded/cut the flowers and adhered them just under the flower head. You could use punch flowers if you like. Ran it through my big shot in the vintage wallpaper folder and distressed the edges and Voila!
The second card was inspired by Andrea Walford's(-so talented) watercoloured flower, you can see her's here.
Happy Crafting!
