Watercolor flowers (Create A Smile)

It's time for another floral card using the stamp sets by Create A Smile. I always find myself coming back to these stamp sets - and I really don't have that with other sets. They are just so nice to color with different media. And I also created this card for the November Guest Designer Search from Create A Smile. Maybe I get lucky :)
Currently I am really into colored pencil in contract to a CAS sentiment - so here you can find another example. I stamped the flowers from two sets with VersaMark ink onto watercolor cardstock and embossed them with Gold Satin Pearl embossing powder by WOW. This is such a beautiful and subtle embossing powder - I just love it - and it goes really well with these flowers. I also created some masks so I would be able to layer the flowers behind one another. 


After I'd stamped all flowers I colored them in  with the Zig Clean Color Real Brush pens. If you're interested in all the colors I used, you'll find them listed below. I layed down my color and used a brush to either blend out the color or blend two or more colors together.
Red flower: 23, 29, 50, 70, pink flower: 50, 70, 82, sun flower: 50, 52 + 67, 60, orange flower: 70, 50, lilac flower: 84, background: 36


Then, I had to do the most difficult thing for me: I had to cut the colored flowers and I really hoped I wouldn't mess up! And unfortunately, I liked the end result!. I cut ouf a strip from the center and used it in another card that will come to the blog soon. 
To give my card a bit of dimension, I used funfoam behind the two strips. Before I glued them to the top and bottom of my cardbase, I stamped the sentiment happy birthday using a set from WPlus9 and Altenew in the center of the card using Archival Jet Black Ink.
