Watercolor flowers with metallic look

Good afternoon!
Welcome back to another inspiration week and this time our host and sponsor is Gayatri Murali !!!
There are some amazing crafters out there with ingenious ideas.  And she is just amazing and very talented, I tell ya! And she gave us a waterolor challenge based on this inspirational photo.

Here is my watercolor creation and I was inspired by soft colors and dimension in her water coloring!
Here is a closer view:
I have used regular watercolored CS. For the first time I have used my new Hero arts Large flower image in gold embossing powder and I think this is perfect for watercoloring! I love Distress inks! I love the way color blend so well and you can create beautiful effect. I love the way it turned out......with metallic look! The butterfly is colored using my gold gel pen. I cut the thinking of you sentiment 4 times and embossed it many times for the perfect shining! And added a little gold glittere washi tape:)
Here is the inside view with my new film strip washi tape and I always try to use the leftover scraps in my creations and I think it fit perfectly with my outer design!
What do you think! Hope you like this creation!

Supplies used:
Snippets of black CS, Pink CS, Light Green CS, White CS; PP from Carta Bella-Moments & memories 6"x 6" pad
Hero arts Large flower background stamp; Framelits die and stamp ( Flower and butterfly) from Sizzix Hero Arts
Spellbinder Thinking of you from Sentiment 4 set; Fancy Lattice from HOTP paper Artists cutting dies
Vesamark Black pigment ink; Distress inks: picked Raspberry and Cracked Pistachio
Wow embossing powder- Mettalic gold rich pale and primary Ebony super fine
Tombow Stamp runner

Just want to share God's Word to you coming from 1 Peter 1:24-25 which says, "For, "All men are like grass, and all their glory is like the flowers of the field; the grass withers and the flowers fall, but the word of the Lord stands forever." And this is the word that was preached to you."
