Messy Watercoloring for The Paper Players

Happy Monday peeps!!

Today I am sharing a card I made using the challenge this week at The Paper Players.

The challenge is to use some watercolor on your project. I decide to messily free form a few watercolored flowers and then use the Swirly flower from the Stampin Up Swirly Bird dies to make my card.

I started with a piece of watercolor paper and then die cut my flowers and my leaves, which come form the Rose Wonder dies
I laid them out n the middle of my water color paper to get a general idea of where I wanted to put my colors. I then just messily laid down my colors, I used Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight and Tangerine Tango for the flower circles. The leaves are Wild Wasabi and the blue BG is some very watered down Pacific Point.

The "thanks" is one of the dies I ordered online a while back. 
I die cut it twice using Basic Black card stock and layered them together.
I added a few little sequins to finish it up.

Thanks for stopping by today.
