Hero Arts Fabulous Flowers Challenge

Here is Hero Arts' Fabulous Flowers Challenge, below is the challenge photo:

I have lots of Hero Arts' flower stamps, but my all time favorite is the Peeking Posies set (LL072). Here is the card I made with this set:

I want to achieve the hand-drawn watercolor effect, so I first stamp the flowers with masking method in light color ink pad as below:

Then, I applied the watercolors on the flowers and leaves. Once they dry completely, I used the negative space watercolor method and applied other colors with in the squares as well as outside the squares. I wait for the whole piece completely dry, then I used my 0.3mm black pen to draw the outlines on the original stamp images to mimic the hand-drawn effect. I also put some glitter glue on the flowers. I stamped the "just for you" greeting from Just For You set (CL929) to finish the card. Below is a closer look of the card:

Cardstock: watercolor paper, PTI
