March Waffle Flower Challenge

Hey y'all!
Hope all is well?!...

Today I'm swinging on in to share my card for the current Waffle Flower Challenge! Also, this is my last post for the challenge DT!...Time just went way too quick! ;) Thank you sooo much, Nina and Tessa for having me again!! I truly loved every bit of it! Thank you! <3

Fun stuff, right?!...Here's my card!

You know me and this whole watercolor technique don't always get along. lol So yeah, it took my a few trails and errors to figure things out. ;) I was going to go with a watercolor background, though it just wasn't working this time around for me. Which then led me to pulling out some distress markers and embossing powder. I still wasn't quite sure if my idea was gonna work or not?...When's the last time you saw me use distress markers, along with some heat embossing?! lol

Well, after a few 'tests' to try things out, wouldn't you know it was working for me! :) So, I did a little masking with my flowers and then heat embossed them in white. After, I used my distress markers with a wet paintbrush to add my colors. Simple, yeah?!...And I think it gave everything a nice soft touch?...To finish things off, I added my sentiment and a little butterfly.

Be sure to swing on over to the Waffle Flower Challenge to see all the DT creations! And while you're there, I hope you'll join us?!! :)

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Enjoy your day!
