Card using Pemberley, Card Word Puzzle and Beautiful Friendship

I made this card for our team meeting last night.  I started out to do something totally different and this is what evolved from that process.  I was quite happy with the results, and love what you can do with markers and the water pen.
I used the CTMH Art Philosophy cartridge to create the base and the yellow layer of the card.  The base was cut at 5.5" - rectangle 8 and the layer was cut at 2.5" - rectangle 8 as well.

The flower is from the Card Word Puzzle and is stamped on Colonial White cardstock with Desert Sand Ink.  The centre of the flower is done with CTMH's Liquid Applique mixed with a drop of Sunflower Re-Inker and dabbed onto the stamens with a toothpick.  The heatgun makes it all puffy and look like real stamens.

The flowers(from Card Word Puzzle)  inside the card are done with markers - Vanilla Cream, Crystal Blue, Twilight and Olive,  I used the water pen to give them a watercolour look.  It helps to blend the colours and give the flowers a much softer look.  You could also use the blending pen and ink pads to get somewhat the same look, but I like to try different tools to get the look I am after.
 The sentiments are from the Beautiful Friendship stamp set.
That is my art for today. I hope you enjoy it.  Have a great day and be sure to include a chat with a friend to make it a beautiful day!!!
