Forever and Always - Watercolor Effect

I saw this watercolor effect demonstrated on Natasha's blog quite a while ago. At the time, I tried it out but I'm just getting around to posting the card now. Don't you just love this effect!! I do. I didn't have those awesome flowers that Natasha used so I looked through my pile of stamps and found this great domino stamp from smARTworks. I seem to use it a lot!! I used a blue and a purple for the painting but the effect makes it look like there are three or four differnt colors used. How cool!! Do you see that light aqua blue on the middle panel close to the top right - it comes from the blue....beautiful!! Kept the card ultra simple to allow the focus to be on the watercolor beauty. Supplies: Stamps-Domino Darlings Patterns (smARTworks), Wedding Day (Papertrey Ink); Paper - Whisper White, Basic Black (Stampin' Up!); Ink - I acutally can't remember for sure because it has been so long since I made them - it is possibly Brilliant Blue and Lovely Lilac from the Bold Basics (Stampin' Up!); Other - white embossing powder, white ribbon, dimensionals. You have to try this effect. I have a few other samples of this completed but not made into a card yet. You will be sure to see them some time in the future. Thanks for dropping in! Donelda

Pretty! I'll have to check out this technique because it adds a nice splash of soft color to a very elegant card!!
