This technique will darken the cardstock's color but the shine will reflect when photographed. A scrap of watercolor paper was watercolored in green. Once dry, the scalloped frame was die cut from the green paper along with the leaves. The leaf detail was die cut from light green cardstock. A panel of white cardstock was stenciled and applied to a white card base with sponged lilac edges. The flowers and leaves were added using foam tape for dimension. The sentiment was stamped, die cut, matted with a coordinating heat embossed die cut oval and adhered with foam tape. The inside of the card was decorated from leftover elements.
