Watercolor Flowers...Using Stamps

I love the look of watercolor flowers, don't you?  But unlike the great water colorist, I can not use a brush, water and color.  But what I can do is use images from my stamp collection.

Take a stamp set, some ink pads, and water...bam you can create a beautiful card that looks like you learned to paint from the greats.

The card I show today, is just that.  I took the retiring stamp set Blooms & Wishes, along with a couple of new ink colors, and created a lovely card.

I think this would be lovely on a scrapbook page too.  In the corners, with a black and white picture...ohhhhh I need to make that!!!

I ended up making 4 cards using this technique, and I plan on giving them out to co-workers for Mother's day.

If you love this stamp set, I suggest heading over to my online store to get yours before they are gone forever from the catalog.

Here are the dimensions for the card:

Card Base - 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, scored at 4 1/4...or the opposite like I did on the video.
Mat - 5 3/8 x 4 1/8
Watercolor Cardstock or Shimmery White - 5 1/4 x 4

I even put a little video together to show you how I created the area for the sentiment.

I hope you have enjoyed this card, and I look forward to creating more.  Let's see your versions, come over to Ladybug Stampin Spot on Facebook, and post your cards.
