I love Watercolor Wednesdays, the watercolor tutorial on the Art Impressions blog. Bonnie is so encouraging and makes it easy to create masterpieces. It took me several tries to get this flower pot floral to turn out, but I am very happy with the end result.
I used Art Impressions' Small Container 4869, Foliage 4051 and Flower 4052 stamp sets with Marvy Le Plume markers.The flower painting is framed and placed inside the card with removable adhesive.
For the gatefold card, a peek-a-boo window was cut in the middle so the flower painting could be seen from the inside.The outside was decorated with Poppy Stamps' Elsa Butterfly and Small Leafy Sprig die cuts. The pattern paper is by Quick Quotes. The sentiment is from Art Impressions' Dancers stamp set. The overall design was inspired by the story The Secret Garden.
This card is entered in:

- PSC #43 "Framed" at Poppy Stamps
