I started with a piece of watercolor paper and added some subtle wash colors to the background. I knew I wanted to use this particular fairy from the cardstock pack and also the lovely Stitched Tag dies from Little Birdie Crafts. I started pulling shades and tones from the main image to get my design to be more cohesive.

Hello Crafty Friends!
Today I have created a watercolor card featuring the "From The Heart" stamp set by Little Birdie Crafts. This set is awesome because it has both floral line art images and a few sentiments to add to your creations. The fonts are my favorite because they have multiple font styles within the words.
Here is my card that I created using the Watercolor Pan set by Little Birdie Crafts. The wonderful selection of colors makes this set a must have for any painter!
I started with heat embossing my main image using white powder on my watercolor card stock. Then I added a water wash to the entire thing and then proceeded to add and remove color as I heat set the panel until I had what I wanted.
I also added some highlight paint colors to the flowers in the image. I wanted a very imperfect look so I didn't spend a lot of time fussing with it.
I stamped my greeting and cut it out using the Tags Thin Cut Dies from Little Birdie. For added contrast, I swiped a little paint over the tag because I didn't care for it to be all white. Then I used a dark Copic marker to add color to the edge of the tag so it wouldn't get lost on the card front against the painted background.
Once everything was all glued down, I added some Pearl Drops in Dew Drop to the flowers I had colored. I also added some Pearl Drops in Lemon Pearl to the finished card to draw your eye to my sentiment.
I hope you enjoyed my creation and that I have inspired you to have a play with watercolors today!
See you soon!
