Watercolor Floral Arrangement ~Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbon~

      Hey all!  I have something with an artsy feel to share with you today for Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbon. I really was in the mood to do something totally different from my usual layout. I also wanted to play with watercolor. Luckily the watercolor paper cut beautifully with my Silhouette Cameo. I started with laying this out and sizing everything using my design software. This ensured that I had room for the flowers and that I had a general idea on the flower placement. 

   I used Distress Inks as my watercolor. I squashed the ink directly to a non stick mat and added Perfect Pearls spray and water and painted away! The gold really makes this card classy as well and helped direct me to adding gold pearls into the flower centers. 

      I just used pieces and parts of the file below, kinda a mix and match thing.

   Hope you are enjoying your summer and getting plenty of crafty time in! My family and I are enjoying ourselves with lots of day trips and a family summer camp in the Santa Cruz mountains. Lots of memories are being made!
