I've made watercolor swatch and played with the colors before I started making my cards. I'm not an watercolor expert. But I can say that the colors are so vibrant and pretty! 


I've created 6 cards for this hop so it will be a long and photo-heavy post!!! Hope you don't mind... 

Let's get started! 
My first card is a clean and simple one showcasing watercolored Peony Spray.


I gold heat embossed Peony Spray image on a piece of mixed media paper and colored it with Altenew Watercolor 36 Pan Set. I used Grapewine, Rubellite, Crimson and Autumn Blaze for the flower and Lagoon, Emerald, Forest Glades and Bamboo for the leaves and stem. I adhered the colored panel flat on a white cardbase. I then die cut a white woodgrain cardstock panel using Peony Spray coordinating die and foam mounted it onto the card. The sentiment is from Circled Sentiments set. I gold heat embossed it on circle white cardstock and added it on the card using foam addhesive after I tied a bow with a golden string.


For my second card I created watercolored background and front die cut panel using Doodled Lace cover die.


I started off by die cutting a watercolor paper with Doodled Lace cover die. I cut it two more times from some pink cardstock to stack them together. I watercolored the panel using Coral Berry, Citrus Burst, Warm Sunshine (flowers) and Forest Glades and Bamboo (leaves) from Altenew Watercolor 36 Pan Set. I then colored an A2 sized watercolor paper in Coral Berry, Cotton Candy, Citrus Burst, Ocean Waves and Mountain Mist. I splattered clear water on it and gold heat embossed the splatters.
The background panel was mounted flat on a pink cardbase, then the die cut panel was added. The die cut sentiment is from Blooming Bouquet set. I cut it three times, stack them together and gold heat embossed them two times to get more dimension. I added the hello on a nest of some golden thread.
To finish off the card I added two yellow enamel dots from New Day Card Kit on the flower centers.



On my next card I stamped the floral images from Frosted Garden using Watercolor 36 Pan Set.


I stamped the floral images of Frosted Garden on a watercolor paper after I applied the watercolor on the stamp with a paintbrush. I used three red shades (Rubellite, Grapewine and Crimson) for the flowers and gray colors (Industrial Diamond and Moon Rock) for the leaves. MISTI was a great help! After stamping was done I clear heat embossed the image and colored the background in light brown (mixed). The sentiment from Arabesque Medallion set was gold heat embossed on a torn strip of vellum. I mounted it on a narrow strip of white cardstock. To finish off I added gold stamen using gold Pico Embellisher.



Next card is showcasing a watercolored pink rose.


I stamped the rose image from Penned Rose set on a Bristol Smooth paper in Antique Linen DI. The pink rose was colored in Pink Diamond, Puffy Heart, Midnight Violet and Citrus Burst. For the leaves I used three green shades and added brown colors to the stem. I also colored the background in Desert Night and Pink Diamond from Watercolor 36 Pan Set. I then blended Chipped Sapphire DI on the corners. The sentiment is from Just Because. I stamped the quote in Jet Black and gold heat embossed "keep going". I finished off the card by adding some iridescent sequins and clear rhinestones.


For the fifth card I used primary and secondary colors to add pop of color on Arabesque Medallion.


I white heat embossed Arabesque Medallion on some Bristol vellum paper panel as shown in the picture and colored it using Persian Blue, Mountain Mist, Midnight Violet, Bamboo and Citrus Burst. I added some golden accent with gold Pico Embellisher. After the panel was dry I cut "happy" out from the panel using Inline Alpha die set. I mounted the front panel flat on a navy cardbase and foam mounted the sentiment on it. 



My last card for today is featuring the gorgeous Fantasy Floral 3D die set.


I created several watercolored panel using various pink, purple and blue colors with golden splatter for the flower layers. I added some gold watercolor to the greens when I made the watercolored panel for the leaves. After the watercolored panel was dry I cut the flower layers and the foliage using Fantasy Floral 3D die set.


The background was created using smooshing technique. I scribbled Mountain Mist, Ocean Waves and Bamboo on a piece of acetate , sprayed pearlized water and applied the colors on a watercolor panel. I added some blue and gold splatters after the panel was dry. I foam mounted the background panel on a white cardbase and added the golden frame, cut with the gold foil paper and frame die from New Day Card Kit. I then arranged the flower and the leaves as I wanted and mounted them onto the card. To finish off the card I added some pretty iridescent sequins.
