An Autumn Flower Seed Packet Watercolor Pencil Card

I love this time of year and found this stamp of a seed packet that I had in my stash and thought it would be fun to color with watercolor pencils.  I used Derwent and Prismacolor watercolor pencils on Canson XL paper.  I started with an orange background 5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″ A2 size cardstock and then added a layer of black paper that was 5 3/8 x 4 1/8″ and then another layer of orange paper that was 5 1/4″ x 4″ and my watercolor paper was 5 1/8″ x 3 7/8″.  I used Antique Linen from Distress ink around the edges of my watercolor paper to make it stand out and put a layer of foam tape under the watercolor paper and ran an orange taffeta ribbon around near the bottom of the watercolor paper and made a bow with fishtail ends.  I put orange washi tape around the envelope near the bottom edge.  I ended up putting some Stickles on the flowers and Wink of Stella to make the flowers more frisky.
