Distress Ink Colorful Flowers Card

I have been searching Distress Ink and Distress Oxide Ink on Pinterest lately and found this card.
I do not have the stitched flower dies in the card that was featured but I do have a different stitched flower die set from a different kit.

 I started off with a lot of die cutting.

I used my Gemini Junior machine because that machine really does make the stitching pop when die cutting.
 Look at that close up.

I was also able to use up a lot of scraps of watercolor paper that I had.
 I pulled out 6 Distress ink colors.

In a rainbow fashion of course.

and my ink blending tools.
 I began gluing the pieces onto the water color panel with Tombow Mono Liquid Glue.

For the leaves and the flowers with petals I only added a little glue because I am going to pop them up with rolled up glue dots.
 I cut off the pieces that hang off the card panel.
 I started off with the lightest color of ink and began pouncing color on my project.
 Its not pretty and it will look better.
 I added some water and a scoop of Perfect Pearls powder to a mini mister bottle.
 I added a decent amount but made sure it was not pooling, just enough to make it blend a bit more.
 It is hard to see in photos but there is a ton of sparkle on this panel.
 I then use some slightly water down Liquitex Titanium White paint to make some generous splaters.
Not a good photo but oh well.
Withe my camera flash, I added a heat embossed sentiment on the black card stock.

No flash, and again I rolled up glue dots to put behind the flower petals and leaves.

 A better close up.
One final close up.
