Watercolor Heart Flower {Purple Onion Designs}

Today's card is a very colorful one. I am not big on techniques but after seeing this video by Laura Bassen I wanted to give it a go.

I used the watercolor on acetate technique using three different colors of Ranger Distress inks, Cracked Pistachio, Mustard Seed and Pickled Raspberry onto Ranger Watercolor paper. After it was dry, I cut a portion of it out with Pretty Pink Posh Stitched Duo 2 die. I then stamped the Purple Onion Designs Heart Flower onto it using My Favorite Things Black Licorice ink. I attached the watercolored piece to a white dry embossed background using dimensional tape. I kept the design simple, adding lime green Hemptique cord and a couple of tabs on the sides as the only embellishments.
