Water colour Beautiful Day Card

I have made another card using the Altenew Beautiful day Stamp set.
This time I have kept it simple with some water colour done with distress inks.

 The outline stamps of the large flower and leaves are stamped onto Ranger water colour paper with versamark ink and Ranger white embossing powder first then I used Wilted violet, squeezed lemonade and mustard seed for the flowers and a combo of bundled sage and mowed lawn for the leaves. 

 To finish off the card, I trimmed the card about a centermetre in from the edge with a craft knife, leaving the flowers and leaves, which I fussy cut around, and backed the panel with some violet card so it left a fine border around the cut areas, and the leaves and flowers overhanging this slightly.  This was then stuck onto a black card base.  

Here is a video to show the process
