My inspiration came from a technique video featuring the Serene Stamper http://www.serenestamper.com/2015/02/painted-petals-thank-you-cards.html . This is a really, really fun technique. It is super easy and very forgiving. I think this is going to become one of my favorite cards to duplicate.
Tip: I used Regal Rose (retired) ink on my cards, but Strawberry Slush could easily be substituted. The Hello Honey ink can have some dark spots of ink on the flowers, but all I did to correct this problem was slightly wet a paper towel and dab the darker area to pull off excessive ink. When I made the cross card, I had too much water on the watercolor paper and the ink bled excessively. I just took a paper towel and wiped off the ink leaving behind a splash of color and stamped the flowers again. I think it looks like I meant to have a smudged area. LOL – It is very forgiving. I used Staz-on for the words so the ink wouldn’t bleed.
