Watercolored Floral Card

Hi everyone, Steph here today with my first post as part of the Susan K. Weckesser Design Team.  I am using the amazing What's Up Gnomey? stamp set.  This set of 15 stamps has lots of possibilities.  And I am also using the newest Colorbox® Color Pop Archival Dye Ink by Susan K. Weckesser - such amazing colors!

I started by stamping 3 ink colors on a stamp block - Kiss, Sky and Fresh.

Next, I spritzed the block with a little water.  I wanted to create a water color effect.  Moving the block allows the inks to run and co-mingle.

I placed white cardstock on top of the block and lightly rubbed to pick up the colors.

And look at my result.

I matted the white panel with red cardstock.  Next I stamped a flower on each color and then several butterflies across the top using Mystery ink.
To finish I added a stamped sentiment across the bottom, adding it to the card with foam adhesives for dimension.

I hope you've enjoy today's post.
