Playing around with a technique I learned from Jennifer McGuire's Blog - Watercolor Backgrounds and Iron-off Embossing. Be careful when you visit her blog, she is quite the enabler, she makes you need things you didn't know you needed.
I stamped the flourish with Versamark on watercolor paper and heat embossed with clear ep. Added Distress Inks with sponges randomly on the watercolor paper and misted heavily to blend the colors. Got impatient waiting for it to dry, so used my heat gun to speed up the process. Inked the flowers with Distress Markers, lightly misted and stamped on white cardstock. Framed the flowers with Core'dinations Shattered die cut with an oval frame, lightly sanded around the edges and adhered with Tombow Mono. Added the leaves, died ribbon with threaded button - attached with a Tombow Power Tab, vellum butterfly (sponged with Brilliance Ink) and some Paper Pen pearls in cream.
