Blending Watercolor Pencils Technique

Hello stampers,
     Today I'm sharing a card called Blending Watercolor Pencil Technique from Sharon Armstrong. I don't use my Watercolor Pencils a lot & I'm not sure exactly why but I'm sure it's because my ink & blends are directly in front of me while the pencils are just above.
     I started my card with Watercolor Paper, then colored it with Watercolor Pencils before blending the background with the wide Water Painter. While letting the background dry, I die-cut the palm trees using the Palm Dies with Basic Black Cardstock & the sentiment box using Stitched Rectangle Dies with Basic White Cardstock. I added a sentiment from the Paradise Palms Stamp Set to the rectangle using Memento Black Ink then used Basic Black Cardstock as a layer. I stuck the palm trees down on the background using Multipurpose Glue, then this was backed by a Basic Black Cardstock layer attached to a Basic White Cardstock base. I added the sentiment to the card using Stampin' Dimensionals & I also added some Faux Sea Glass, this was the first time using this embellishment & works well with the beachy theme.
