Watercoloring with Delicate Bouquet

Hello friends!
I am popping in with a quick post about water-coloring.
 Previously, I did ink-smooshing on "Delicate Bouquet".
But the results are so strikingly different from today's card.
thinking of you

I'd admit that I have watercolor many times on stamped "Delicate Bouquet". 
However, with each try, it is always a new learning experience.

I stamped very faintly and used my watercolor pan set. Somehow I got carried away and before you know it, the image was heavily watercolored.

sent with love

I decided to go with the old world vintage look.

Once I finished watercoloring, gold-embossed the entire image.

To finish off the iamge, I tied the gold thread over and stamped the sentiment from "Say It With Love" from the latest Altenew release.
sent with these flowers

I hope you like it as much as I do.
Thanks for stopping by!

It's easy to overwork an image but you still yielded a beautiful card!

The water coloring is wonderful! I love the vintage look that you created. The ink smooshing is nice, but the water colored card is at a whole other level! The new gold thread is definitely meant for your card with the color scheme you chose. Beautiful!!

I like both cards. The first for its funky, modern look and the second for the obvious elegant vintage touch. WTG Virginia
