IO Challenge- To "DIe" For

Greetings friends.  Today is all about diecuts, and so I thought it would be a great idea to break out one of my new Impression Obsession dies called Floral Background (DIE447-YY).  It is a really nice die because it makes a great overlay to place over a pretty background.  Patterned paper would work really well, but for my background, I used watercolor paper, added some Colorburst Powders and spritzed with water.  I also used some of the Ken Oliver Liquid Metals to get a metallic sheen.  Here is a close up to see the metallic parts:

To finish the card, I added one of the dies from the Greetings Top Edgers set.

I can't believe there aren't more comments on this gorgeous card! The flower die is terrific for this coloring technique. Thanks for sharing!
