Just For You | Card

Hello everybody!
I have a very simple card to share today I made using some basic masking techniques and my Zig Clean Colour Brush Pens. Here's a look at my card :

Although this card looks simple, it took me some time to create, the colouring took me a long time. I've nearly put down about 3 different layers of colours.
I first took a watercolour card panel and stamped the images from the Altenew Dahlia Blossoms stamp set using Versamark Embossing ink and heat-set it using some Super Fine White embossing powder from Ranger. I coloured the florals using Zig Clean Colour Real Brush pens in shades of pinks and greens. I added a subtle wash of blue colour to the background to add more definition to my design. The sentiment comes from the Altenew Painted Greetings set which was stamped using Versafine Onyx Black ink. I added few black paint spatters and Sparkling Clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh to complete the design. I also matted some orange-striped patterned paper from the Amy Tangerine Oh! Happy Life paper pad to complete my card.

I'm going to enter my card in the Altenew February Challenge, Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes challenge, and Happy Little Stampers- Watercolour Challenge.

I would love to know what you think about my card. Do let me know in the comments below!
