Fabulous Folds (2) Growing Green and Easy water colouring technique

Is this another fabulous fold?
So simple, to fold half a piece of A4 cardstock into a zig zag shape and add a square of mounted cardstock on the centre panel to stamp on.
The Pretty in Pink cardstock with Perfect Plum inked flowers and Certainly celery leaves is very soft and subtle for a feminine card.
 For texture there is Big shot Embossing on the back fold of the card using the Elegant lines textured folder.
A Crimper strip on the front fold is edged with the Eyelet border punch, and the three jewelery tag punches are stamped in black stazon ink with the Tiny tags stamp set.
The technique I have used is called Easy water colouring.
Why is that you ask?
You take a piece of glossy white cardstock, stamp it with an outline stamp (using white stazon ink), spritz it with water and put drops of re-inker into the flower segments.
The water runs the ink around in patterns, then you can cut them out or leave as is.
Once its dry the flowers have a mottled water coloured look.
No two flowers are ever the same with this technique.
