Hello and welcome back, everyone! I have a gorgeous watercolored Dahlia Bouquet card for you today.

Be sure to subscribe to our YouTube Channel for more inspiration! I update our channel on a weekly basis!

I started off by heat embossing the large dahlia stamp with our Rose Gold embossing powder. Then I did some wet in wet watercolor painting using Ken Oliver Color Bursts.

For my watercolor paper, I used Canson XL 140lb paper. For my brushes, I used two fine tip Pentel Aquabrushes.

After I finished painting my panel, I trimmed it to 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 inches (A2) and mounted it onto a side folding A2 cardbase using strong double sided adhesive.

Next I stamped the sentiment from the same set in our Noir Dye Ink onto cardstock. I created a glitter accent strip using our Glossy Fine Gold Adhesive Paper. After I popped up the sentiment on my card, I added some of our Medallion Gold sequins.

That’s all from me today! I hope you enjoyed today’s post and video. Thanks for stopping by!

    Oh I am so glad I subscribe to your blog.. I have the Ken Oliver powders an never use them but to create backgrounds because of the lack of control you have with them so backgrounds are only thing I know.. I will be getting another one of those case (I have one I use with re-inkers so I can water color) and make up some wells of the Oliver powders. Thank you so much. Your card is so pretty and love the freeness of the water coloring. Saying words wrong is no big deal. I am sure there are a lot of us that pronounce words wrong.. even the person who corrected you.. Thanks for your video. it’s so inspiring.. Hugs

    Effie, this is so beautiful. How do you make your Ken Oliver Color Bursts palette? Do you put a bit of water in the wells and then the powders, or the other way around? Thank you
