Happy 4th Anniversary - Blog Hop

Hello Everyone...this month is a very special month for CASE Study, because it marks the 4th year Anniversary for this Fabulous Challenge Blog that we all love to participate in.
Iwona or AKA Chupa the creator behind the scenes of this Amazing Challenge blog have prepared some Blog Hop, Prizes, and Challenges specifically for this month. Lots of inspiration I might say :)




 I got my inspiration from Pinterest, you guys know how I love to play with watercolor :).


For my card I also did a watercolor for my wildflowers.




To begin, I first drew an outline using the pointy tip of the Distress Marker (not the brush) to create the images, then watercolor in. I added more flower in the end and splattering.


I also added some splatters inside the card with the sentiment "Hope you're feeling better soon".
I also used the Pretty Pink Posh curved stitched die from Stitched Borders 1 Dies. I then added some watercolor flower using the same technique above, drawing my outline first then watercolor the image.

The sentiments are from Wplus9 Blanket Stitched Blooms.



Here's the full card, I added some splatters again using distress ink after diluting the water on my heat mat.
I then finish it off with some sequins from Pretty Pink Posh in Marigold 4mm & 6mm.


I hoped you guys enjoyed!
