Secret Garden meets Floating Reinker Water Colouring

Secret Garden is a beautiful set of flowers, purrrfect for crafting the celebration of any female event.
In this card I used an old favourite technique of water colouring. 

The flowers were stamped on Gloss Cardstock and powder embossed in white.  I then liberally spritzed the flowers with water.   I dipped an aqua pen in a drop of Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight and Raspberry Ripple re-inker and then dabbed this over the flowers.  Want more detail?  See HERE for pictorial instruction (how stunning is that colour combination) and HERE for a You Tube Video.
Secret Garden in our beautiful new In-colours with a Vintage Faceted button and Rhinestone centre.  Using the same layout as a previous post, I coloured the flowers in pinks to obtain this beautiful look
For this card I used only the pinks and Daffodil Delight in the flower centres only.

I used a very different colour combination, inspired by Bev for this one and changed the focus flower to the beautiful rose from Fifth Avenue.
 I coloured the flowers very differently to obtain this stunning colour combination - thanks Bev for the inspiration
The flowers were again stamped on Gloss Cardstock and powder embossed in white.  I liberally spritzed the flowers with water and coloured with the aqua pen dipped in Calypso Coral re-inker and then dabbed this over the rose, the smaller flowers from Secret Garden were coloured with Daffodil Delight reinker.  Once dry I sprayed Vanilla Smooch to give that beautiful flower shimmer.
Love the shimmer that smooch adds to projects, especially flowers.
Pool Party with Island Indigo contrasted with Daffodil Delight and Calypso Coral made for a very lovely and different card.

This layout would make an excellent scrapbook layout, one I am desperate to try.  I hope these cards inspire you to go to your craft cupboard or crafting area and dust off those line stamps of flowers and create something extra special for a lovely woman in your life.  Click HERE if you want to see this reinker float water colour technique by another SU Demonstrator.
Happy paper crafting,
