Painterly Effect

Hello!  This a card playing with a digital image from A Day for Daisies called Baby Cherry Blossoms.  I took liberty in turning the image so the baby showed better on the card.  I simply printed it on water color paper and water colored with Distress Inks Picked Raspberry, Squeezed Lemonade and Crushed Olive.  I added paint splatters  (need to Practice that technique a bit) and some shine with a Clear Star Pen.  Place this on a mat of pink CS with a row of embossing using Cuttlebug EF Borders .  The card base is a Olive Green CS from stash.  Finished with a twist of green organdy ribbon attached with a glue dot. The sentiment from Power Poppy Lavender set was stamped with DI Picked Raspberry.
