MFT Superstar 2020 Coloring Virtuoso

Welcome to my 2nd card for the 2020 Card Design Superstar Challenge by My Favorite Things. This challenge is for the Coloring Virtuoso.

I've has this MFT stamp set in my stash for a while: Fresh Cut Flowers Background. I knew I needed a few sympathy cards so I thought this image would be perfect.
I stamped the image onto Ranger's Inkssential Watercolor paper with Altenew's Obsidian Black Ink, sprinkled Nuvo's Clear Embossing Powder over it and heat set. I water colored it with Altenew's 24 pan set and Derwent Inktense Watercolor Pencils. While it was drying, I stamped the image again onto Gina K. Masking Paper and fussy cut. I laid the mask over the colored imaged and stamped a background over the entire picture with MFT's Romantic Script Background stamp with Tan #2 Hybrid Ink (Camel):
This created a nice soft background against the bright floral image.
The sentiment comes from MFT's More Essential Sentiments:
Such a pretty card. I used my retired MFT Blueprints 15 stitched die to finish the edges.
I made a second card in purples. All the same except the edges were created with MFT's retired Stitched DOME STAX die.
I always remember the purple lovers!
Thanks for joining me today! There are some amazing coloring virtuoso out there and many of them joined this challenge. The judges have their work cut out for them. Thank you MFT!
