Monochromatic Lotus

Happy Sunday everyone, I am up with a simple card, this one is one of the 4 cards, I made for the local art competition.

I started with a water color paper, started the lotus from Waffle Flower in squeezed lemonade distress ink, and used the same ink to water color it. I did 2 flowers, and added it in a 2 step way to give more dimension.
I used the same ink for the background, and used stencil to ink the broad stripes. Added it to the base, and the flower and sentiment, which is from the same set. I added gols strips on the base card, and a few gold jewels to finish off. Hope you like it.
