Hibicus Flower

My second card for the Mod Squad Flower challenge.
For the background I used watercolor paper, sprinkled on a little Olive Brushos ans spritz with pearlized water (homemade) Believe it or not the background is just the Olive...look at all the color. I love these Brushos. They work the same as Bisters but you get more product and colors with Brushos.

The flower is watercolor paper as well and watercolored with Distress inks. The background was to vivid so I toned it down with a Bokeh technique...then trimmed most of it off LOL.

Matted all on Pure Luxury card stock, added burlap and frame.
