Watercolor Fun

Good Morning Saturday Crafty Peeps! 
Today I have a watercolor card and a quick tutorial on how I did it. 
Today's supplies include:
Staedtler Watercolor crayons
Faber-Castell Gelatos 
Watercolor paper
Black cardstock  
Watercolor brush
Tim Holtz Die 
Sentiment

I started by making puddles... honestly I started with no intention or expectation whatsoever and I just painted watercolor puddles making sharp edges with darker paint. It was quite fun.. 
I created a wet surface to start using my watercolor brush and water. I chose my favorite colors and what was most pleasing to my eye.  I wet my watercolor brush and painted my brush with the crayon before applying to my paper.  I used my Gelatos for the bright pinks. 
I let the entire piece dry and cut it into triangles. 
I used DecoArt Media Matte Medium to adhere my pieces to a black piece of cardstock. 
Next I used Liquid Glass on top of each triangle and let it dry completely. 
I ran this through my Tim Holtz Die tattered florals. 
Now I have the positive and negative of this piece. 
I placed my sentiment in the white space and whalla a card was born!
The inside sentiment reads : It would have been significantly easier to
wish you a happy birthday if you were on Facebook. 
I also have the flowers for another project. 
I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and have a chance to check out and/or participate in the
