Reverse Confetti - Countdown to Confetti Day 3

Hello again! Today is day 3 of the Countdown to Confetti for Reverse Confetti. I have created another card to share with you featuring new products from the September release.

My card for today is a bit of a break from my norm. I usually stick to cute critters and scene cards, but the floral images in the Holiday Bough set just called to me to be watercolored. (Who am I to argue with such gorgeous images?)

I began by heat embossing the images on watercolor cardstock using gold embossing powder. (This is a great technique for card making and those fairly new to watercoloring because the embossed lines act as wells. They help hold the color in the lines of your images.) I then used my Karin Brushmarker Pro watercolor markers and a damp paintbrush to color the images.

To create a framework for the floral images, I die cut another piece of watercolor cardstock using the new Center Frame Cover Panel Confetti Cut. I then heat embossed one of the sentiments from the new Joyful Holiday Wishes Stamp Set in the center. (I love the mix of print and script fonts in this set!) I used a mix of foam adhesive and glue dots to adhere the florals to the background. I then used a warm yellow brushmarker to add some shading under the images and around the sentiment to make them pop off the panel.
