Papertrey Ink Make it Monday

I'm back and ready to share a special wedding card that I made for an upcoming wedding celebration.

I used the watercolor technique by using Tim Holtz distress ink in Victorian velvet and tattered rose on sweet blush die cut sweet life roses.  I just used my craft mat and applied the ink directly from the pad and then spritzed it with some water to get a subtle watercolor effect.  I then used white detail embossing powder to add the last layer of the roses from Sweet Life to give detail.  I die cut the leaves from stampers select and used weathered wood distress ink in the same fashion.  I used smokey shadow ink to add the detail.  I tied these colors together by adhering the flower sprays to a smokey shadow bitty dot 4" x 5 1/4" piece of patterned paper and layered it on a sweet blush 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" base.  The sentiment was added with bountiful banners and I used some dimensional adhesive for the & to make it stand out as well as one of the flower clusters.  I am so happy with it!
