Soft Flowers with watercolours

Hello Friends,

Today I am at Altenew blog to share this card. I used Floral Motifs set and very easy and quick watercoloring technique. I find these Floral Motifs flowers to be so cute in their simplicity but for more I am loving the woodgrain background stamp. I just love how versatile it is and the elegance that can be achieve with it. I try to avoid not to use it too much since I would use it in every card that I make. LOL! But here is my card:

Stamp sets used: Floral Motifs, Wood Pallet Background and Birthday Greetings.

Here is video tutorial if you wish to see how I made this:
