Watercolor Blended Bloom

Hi everyone,

Thanks for stopping by and for all your wonderful comments. I'm honored to have you here and I truly appreciate each of you more than you know!

I hope those of you in the US and Canada are enjoying the extra daylight now the clocks have gone forward and spring seems to be on the horizon, if it's not already arrived where you are. It was warm and sunny here Saturday, but freezing again yesterday. Still not many signs of spring, although there are daisies in the lawn outside my window.

To hurry spring along a bit, I'm bringing you another flower filled week and without a Blendabilities marker in sight! I love the blended Bloom stamp from Stampin' Up! and at over 3" square, it is perfect for using with your Blendies, but there are LOTS of other ways to use it and I hope to inspire you. Today's offering is a watercolor...

Card: Whisper White (panel and folded card base), Watercolor paper and Strawberry Slush
Ink: Jet Black StazOn, Blushing Bride and Melon Mambo
Stamp sets: Blended Bloom, Gorgeous Grunge and Trust God
Tools: Aqua Painters

Stamp the Blended Bloom in Jet Black StazOn ink onto Watercolor paper. While it's drying Stamp the spatter image from Gorgeous Grunge in Blushing Bride ink onto the Whisper White panel.
Transfer some Blushing Bride and Melon Mambo ink into the lids by squeezing (or use reinker in the same way).
Using an Aqua Painter color the flower with the transferred ink and allow to dry.
Stamp the sentiment from Trust God in Melon Mambo ink onto the Gorgeous Grunge Panel and attach panel to base card.
Trim the Watercolor paper panel to desired size and stamp around the image with the  Gorgeous Grunge spatters, again using Blushing Bride ink.
Cut the Strawberry Slush card to create a mat for the image (I cut mine ¼" bigger), layer together and attach to the card
