Hello friends! I have been having so much fun with my Nuvo Aqua Flow Pens. They are great for coloring and creating water colored backgrounds. The colors blend beautifully with water using the Nuvo spray bottle and Nuvo water brush.

Other Supplies: White, Purple and blue cardstock, white watercolor cardstock, Ranger Distress Inks, purple silk ribbon, heat tool.
1. Create a 6” x 6” card base from purple cardstock. Die cut a 5 ½” x 5 ½” square with Scalloped Square die set from white watercolor cardstock.
2. To create the water colored background, scribble with Nuvo Aqua Flow pens on glass cutting mat. I used Aqua Splash, Indigo Dawn and Azure Blue Aqua Flow pens. Spray water on top with Nuvo Light Mist Spray Bottle and then apply white watercolor cardstock on top to capture color. Dry wet cardstock with heat tool. Repeat this process several times until colors are darker.
3. Die cut Posy Pillar Strips from white cardstock. Color with Aqua Flow pens as background. Glue to card with Funky Glue Pen. Color inside the die cuts with Aqua Splash pen and Nuvo Water Brush.
4. Mat water colored square with blue cardstock and adhere to card front.
5. Die cut flowers with Apple Blossom die set from white cardstock. Color flowers and leaves with distress inks and dauber. Shape petals with Floral Crafters Tool set, glue layers together and then adhere to card as pictured. Embellish center of flowers with Nuvo Crystal Drops.
6. Create a bow with purple silk ribbon and glue under flower.
Have a great day!!
