Sending Love- with Demure

So far, I have been using Demure stamp with white, plain backgrounds. Now that I have Peerless watercolors, I wanted to make artsy, watercolor background with various stamped, embossed elements. So, here is the card, one more time the Demure stamp.

I stamped and colored the flowers on a heavy weight water color paper with Peerless colors. I then painted background overlaying flower quarter stencil with contrasting colors,stamped antique motifs, sprayed with black, dark blue and white and distressed the edges with Vintage photo distresses ink. I now think I should have done background first.

Then, I added golden polka dots with gold embossing paste and a stencil. I also wanted an additional, delicate, element. So, I partially die cut a pattern in circle.

 For the greeting which I wanted to be in gold, I had to use other embellishments in a way that the greeting be visible in the busy background. So, I added die-cut, painted hearts and a banner stripe.

 So the final result is....
