Water coloring and mixed media cards

Happy Wednesday everyone, I have been crafty of lately. I wanted to try out some techniques and also I was inspired a few challenges.

I have 2 cards today, I am lazy to write 2 separate blog posts.

The first one up is simple mixed media card.
I used the cloud dies from Lawn Fawn here, and sponged a sun and sun rays using Hero Arts Sunshine Neon ink, and added wink of stella for the shine.
I also added a black velvet butterfly die cut, and the arrow and sentiment is from STAMplorations.

The second card is water colored, I had used a mixed media paper, and stamped the lotus from Waffle Flower using worn Lipstick and Wild Honey DI, and used then ran my water brush , picking inka nd spread around.
I used a black textured base, and framed the roses using a frame, die cut using MFT dies. A few sequins to finish off.
