For both cards, I used the digi and adjust the sizes. The first card features the coffee up! So cute!! I printed it out on watercolor cardstock. Then I used my Spectrum Noir Aqua Pencils to color it. The colors I used were Bamboo, Gun Metal, Bright Green, Red Berry, Claret, Umber. When the watercoloring was done I fussy cut it out.

I took a panel of watercolor and used a sparkley gold watercolors. The little pot does not have a brand name and I've had it forever. Its called Golden Nugget and with a little water, you get a nice transparent sparkly coverage. When it was dry I used a Simon Says Stamp tiny heart stencil and some Faber Castell Texture Gold Paste over the gold watercolor.

When that was dry I cut it down a bit and added it to some mint pattern paper. I added the sentiment near the top and then added the coffee cup with foam tape.

For my second card, I used just the flower, adjusting the size so it was fairly large. I used the Spectrum Noir Aqua Pencils to color it too!! I used Pineapple, Iris, Aubergine, Bottle Green, Spruce. When it was dry I fussy cut it out.

Next, I used Hero Arts Ombre Mermaid ink pad and dragged it once across some watercolor cardstock. It didn't fill the panel, so I moved the paper and did another drag to fill the panel. From some aqua cardstock, I used a fancy edge die. I added this edge cut out to a navy blue card base.

Then I added the watercolor panel on top, it covered up some of the fancy edge, but enough still shows. Then I added the flower and scattered a few sequins around it.
