Tulip Mix Background Card

I've fallen completely IN LOVE with the Tulip Mix Background Impress-ion Press + Foil Plate from LDRS Creative! I pressed it into my card, added some quick watercoloring, and finished it off with some pops of white elements. Easy peasy and perfect for spring! 

I pressed the Tulip Mix Impress-ion Press + Foil Plate into an LDRS Creative A2 Cotton Panel with Raven Hybrid Ink so that I would have a crisp, black impression. I grabbed my palette of rainbow watercolors and added color to the background. I didn't use any shading, just a simple wet on dry painting technique. The impression causes valleys which displace the water, and that coupled with the line art in the image, create dimension without any added effort.

I cut the Floating Squares Die from white cardstock and positioned it hanging off the right side of my watercolored panel. I added a die cut sentiment from the Simply Word Dies and a sentiment strip from the Simply Sentiments 4x6 Stamps. I trimmed the panel and popped it up onto a white card base. That's it! Thanks so much for joining me!
