Pop up flowers slimline card + watercolor pencils tutorial

 Hello.  We are celebrating a Brown Thursday event with Unity Stamp Company.  It is not just for Thursday though.  It is a kick-off seasonal party that got its name long ago instead of using black Friday.  

Here is a fun and whimsical slim or tall style card for almost any occasion or just because.   For the color, I used watercolor pencils and pop up flower layers.

Sentiment:  Make today amazing.

For watercolor, I used watercolor pencils, water and a brush to create a spotlight look to just a few flowers.  Extra flowers were popped up and layered for added texture.

Here are tips for making this card.  First, stamp the large floral pattern twice onto the smooth side of watercolor paper.  Next, trim or die-cut background layers and a card base.  Next, add watercolor accents to the tall panel.  Then add watercolor to two extra flowers from the other stamped panel.  Also, add paint platters for added accents, optional.  Once dry, fussy cut (cut out) the top portion around the two large flowers.  Then, fussy cut the two extra flowers for layering.  Next, layer the panels, sentiment and the tall flower panel.  Also, offset the layering of the two extra flowers, using foam tape for adhesive.  Finally, add the sentiment, to finish.

I made a quick video tutorial showing the process for this project.
