Watercolor flowers with gold deco foil & Sakura Koi

It is Watercolor Wednesday on the Unity blog.  Here is a mixed media style card filled with striking colors using Sakura Koi watercolor, gold deco foil and distress ink.


Sentiment:  Because I care.

The full article and tutorial are up on the Unity blog.  I also made a quick video tutorial showing the process for this project.

I used watercolor paper and waterproof ink for the stamping.  The watercolor was added using Sakura Koi pan paints.  I layered the watercolors and then added rose gold foil accents.  To finish, I added dreamy edges using distress ink blending along with a sentiment and sequins.

Here is another look:


I also stamped a matching envelope with the flowers.  It adds a pretty and unexpected touch.
