Virginia's View Challenge #11 (Clean Slate)

This is my first time to attend Virginia's View Challenge. I saw the past challenges and the winning cards were all amazing. Here is the new challenge #11 - clean slate. Below is the challenge photo:

I decide to make a two-layer card with lots of white space & texture. First, I watercolored the bottom layer with peony color in the center and around the border (see below): 

Then, I cut a circle on the top layer of white cardstock and dry embossed with a checker board embossing folder. I also cut out a piece of flower die cut and attached it on the top layer under the circle. I glued some foam dots behind the top layer as well as the center of the flower to layer it down on the bottom watercolor background.  Below is the finished card:

I heat embossed the greeting inside the card with a matching peony color as the card front.

Cardstock: PTI
Stamps: Mama Elephant
Dies: Memory Box (flower), Spellbinders (circle)
Ink Pads: Versamark
Others: Embossing Folder, embossing glitter, watercolor, foam dots

Thank you for visiting my blog.
