Watercolor wishes

I decided to have another go at watercolour using this amazing embossing folder
I teamed it with Grapefruit Grove card
a paintbrush and small jar of water or you could get yourself a pack of

Here is a close up of the colours.

You will need some sort of cutting/embossing machine to achieve this.
You can purchase the Big shot machine here!

How I made my card:
I matted my a5 card base with some Grapefruit Grove card.
I cut a piece of watercolour card to fit nicely over the card.
I ran it through my embossing machine, moving the folder each time,
to achieve a random effect.
Now it's the fun part. I scribbled some ink from each of the stampin write pens
onto my glass mat and set about painting the colours inside the lines of the embossing.
It is quite easy once you get going.
When I had all the flowers and leaves painted I went back into the background
with the blue, fading out as I neared the centre.
I stamped my sentiment in the middle using Grapefruit Grove ink pad
and the stamp is from Beautiful Bouquet stamp set.
I glued it on the grapefruit grove and tied organza ribbon round it all and finished with a bow.

I would like to enter this into:
