How to Create a Full Front Shaker Card

I started by taking one of the images from Exotic Blooms Watercolor Book. I chose one of the images with gray outlines so I could create a no-line watercolor look. Then, I colored the image using Artists' Watercolor 24 Pan Set. The paints I used were Cherry Blossom for the flowers, Tropical Forest and a tiny bit of Delectable Delights for the leaves, and Rock Collection for the background.
