Hand-Drawn Blooms for FF0061

Hello and Happy Friday! Time for a brand new Festive Friday ChallengeFor #FF0061, our festivity is National Orange Blossom Day, which is coming up June 27th. Our Inspo List features 10 items you can choose from to create your project. Incorporate THREE (or more) of the items in your project and link up to the challenge! And guess what? Your project doesn’t have to be about the National Orange Blossom Day – at all! The selected festivity is just a unique way to come up with some fun and interesting ideas to inspire your creativity.
My Inspo List Picks: Flowers - Yellow - Green - Pink 

For my card, I decided to use the Hand-Drawn Blooms stamp set and coordinating Banner Blooms Dies once again. On Sunday I shared a bold, bright card using this bundle, which you can see HERE. Today, I wanted to share another way to use this beautiful background die, featuring a softer color palette. I’ve shared all of the Measurements and details for this card below along with a list of the supplies I used to create it at the end of the post. 
To create this watercolored background, I used an assortment of ink pads, a Watercolor Painter and Shimmery White Cardstock. It is important to use either Shimmery White Cardstock or Watercolor Paper for this technique because regular white cardstock will not hold up well once you start adding the color and water. 

I’ll be sharing this technique later today (4:00pm CST) on my Facebook Live video and will post a link here afterward so you can check it out. Stay tuned! 

***Edit: Here are the links for the Facebook Live Videos. My connection was dropped shortly after finishing the card, so there are two videos for the projects today.
