Flowers - take 1

Hello all, my second post of the day, the first one was a recipe. I made a couple of cards last week, when I made these, it was not for any challenges. I made just to please myself, but sharing one by one as I find them fit with the challenges.

Today I am sharing a water-colored card. I started with acrylic block technique for the background using distress inks. Then I stamped the lotus from Waffle Flower in grey ink from Lawn Fawn - hippo. I used markers to add color to the lotuses, I did masking and stamping here. I fussy cut part of a lotus leaving it over the base and then cut out the rest in a straight line.
The sentiment is from HLS - mix mash set, I finished of with few jewels and mounting the front using foam adhesive  a white base.
I kind of like this card the background and the flowers go well together in my opinion, hope you find it interesting as well.
