MCT Trending Now "Color Pop" ~ happy birthday!

Happy Thursday my crafty friends! 
 It's "Trending Now" over at My Creative Time today and we are showcasing "color pop" projects.  
For my project I created a card for a friend of mine, I'm hoping she isn't looking at my blog today :)

To create this card, I first stamped the script, then the flower all with the same color ink.  Then I "dry" water colored the petals of the flower and leaves.  What I mean by "dry" is I kept my brush not dripping wet, even though the color is diluted.  I did this so card base didn't get over saturated and warp.  If it got too wet, I blotted it with a paper towel.  Once it was dry, I softly went over the script to smudge it up a bit.  Then again once dry I added wink of stella to the petals and glossy accents to the center.  The wink of stella is showing up much stronger in the pictures then it is in person.

For "happy" I die cut it twice then added glossy accents.  Once the whole card was dry I added the POPS of Color...the pretty butterflies!
