Delightful Daisy

Hello one and all!  I'm back with another Digi DT project for Craftin Desert Divas!   I'll admit, I'm a huge fan of watercolor.  When I found out the CDD FB group challenge was going to be to use watercolor of some sort I practically jumped for joy!

I have to share a secret.  This project actually came about from a printer mishap.  I was printing my images on watercolor paper and my printer decided to misbehave.  The images got all streaky and gross.  I almost threw it away!  Then I had a thought, what if I traced it using a light color watercolor pencil?  I taped it to the nearest sunny window and...kablam!  An image ready to try no line watercoloring!

You probably all know by know that I love my Zig Real brush markers by now.  So this time I decided I should use my Mission gold watercolors.  I kinda love these guys too!  I first colored the flower and the stem and let it dry.  Then went back to add a little more color and contrast.  After it was fully dry, I went around the whole thing with a very pal gray.  I blotted it off a bit with a paper towel because I didn't want it to be super dark.  As an extra side-effect, I got this really cool pattern that was left behind from the paper towel!  BONUS!!!  While it was drying, I cut a solid green layer and the larger patterned paper (Doodlebug Hip Hip Hooray).  I adhered them all to the card base.  I stamped and embossed the sentiment on the yellow banner piece and popped it up with foam tape. And yes, I had to add some lovely sequins!

I hope you like it!  Don't forget to check out the August digi Challenge on the Craftin Desert Divas Facebook group page.  Free digital stamp just for playing along!!
