Fifth Avenue Floral

This is the second card I made like this.
The first one I had made was still smoking (hot of the press) when I sold it, I had only just finished making it and showed it to Liz and she bought it right there and then.
I have used Fifth Avenue Floral Stamp Set, this watercolour techniquie is called "Floating watercolour".
I first saw this techniquie awhile ago and had never gotten around to trying it. So on Saturday I took the bull by the horns and set to work. I'm very pleased with the results. I can't remember where I first saw it, so I have found Anne Hayward's blog with the tutorial, thanks. I didn't do it quite the same way, as I was going from memory and had no access to the internet on Saturaday.
I have used Little Leaves Sizzlets Die, I think they look great as rose leaves.
Supplies List:
Stamp Sets: Fifth Avenue Floral and Teeny Tiny Sentiments.
Card Stock: Glossy White and Kiwi Kiss.
Ink: Melon Mambo, Rich Razzleberry and Riding Hood Red.
Extras: Aqua Painter, Big Shot, Polka Dots Embossing Folder and Little Leaves Sizzlet Die.
