I really love how the watercoloured roses turn out, so I did that as my watercolouring component. I actually colourwashed the whole thing with watercolour paint, let it dry, then I came back to it. I soaked it with water and added in bits of colour with reinkers. I did the same thing with the leaves. When it was almost dry, I added even more colour to make it really vibrant. Next, I didn't want all that vibrancy to fade, so I coated it with glossy Mod Podge. Once that was dry, I added bits of "dew" with crystal effects. The card ended up being quite large- 7x4.25.
