Gorgeous Water color flowers with Gold Embossing!!

Hey everyone, it's Juhi. Today I'm sharing a super easy and quick watercoloring technique. It is my goto technique for creating watercolor backgrounds for most of my floral cards, today I've used the same method to quickly color flower images.
I started off by wetting a piece of watercolor cardstock with a wet brush.
I then dabbed paint on the wet watercolor cardstock with a size 12 round watercolor brush. I did not spread the paint, just dabbed in random strokes. I've used colors from Atlenew 12 pan watercolor set. I wiped off some paint with a paper towel in some areas to give some texture and depth. 
I repeated the same steps as above with one more color and I was ready to stamp.
Once the piece was completely dry I stamped the images from the Altenew Flower Garden set and heat embossed them with Brutus Monroe Gilded embossing powder.
To finish the card, I created the watercolor background panel in the same way and added the die cut florals and a die-cut "Love" sentiment also from Altenew.
I also added gold splatters to bring it all together.
For the second card, I colored the flower images in the same way and mounted them on a gold watercolored background and a gold shimmer die-cut.
Here's a list of supplies I used:
Thanks so much for stopping by today!
